Five Indian workers in Bahrain were allegedly locked up in their room by their sponsor after they demanded overtime dues.
In a complaint they filed with police against their sponsor, the men, who were staying in an accommodation at Kingdom Tower Building Construction Company, said they were told to keep working without overtime even after their shift was over.
However, they said, they refused to do this, following which they were allegedly locked up on Thursday by their sponsor’s son and the company manager so that they would not escape.
That’s the problem with Gulf. There is an organised slavery in the Gulf region and it is totally backed up by the governments of that reason.
