"We applied for a job in Dubai. The Dubai agent said that the job is in Thailand but there was no job when we reached there. They took us around 450 km away to some place in a car. From there, a group of Chinese people made us cross a river illegally," a victim from Coimbatore told ANI.

"They took our company phones and later we got to know that we were in Myanmar. We didn't have VISA and were illegally there. We had to chat via fake IDs with VIPs. The local military rescued us. We were mentally tortured and worked for 15-16 hours a day. A lot of people came via different agents," added the victim. (ANI)
