Securitymen from the General Immigration Department have arrested a gang of Africans operating a bogus domestic labor office for human trafficking. In a recent press statement, the department revealed it received information about a group of Africans involved in human trafficking. After verifying the information, an undercover agent was sent to the bogus office to request for a housemaid who will work on daily basis.
An Asian ‘middleman’, who works as a taxi driver, offered the services of two housemaids who have been reported absconding by their former employers. During interrogation, the taxi driver told the securitymen that he forged the signature of the sponsor and presented fake documents through the cooperation of some officers in exchange for money. A case was registered and the suspects were referred to the concerned security department for the necessary legal action.
