Puducherry, Jul 4 (UNI) A youth hailing from here today urged the territorial administration to initiate action against a foreign recruitment agency 'Royal Enterprises' in Nainaarmandapam here, for allegedly cheating people by providing bogus visas.
In a complaint to the C I D police, Vadivelu (25) an ITI trained personnel said that Royal Enterprises gave him a visa for Rs 80,000 and sent him to Kuwait on May 17 this year to take up the job as an electrician.
However, he was sent to a fibre boat manufacturing unit and was given the job of a painter with a salary of Rs 7,000, as against the promised salary of Rs 20,000. Moreover, no proper food was given to him, he alleged.
Vadivelu said that with the help of some Tamil neighbours, he managed to return and reached Chennai on June 17 and got treated in a hospital.
Vadivelu, who reached here yesterday, urged the police to take action against the agency which had cheated him.
Meanwhile, parents of about ten other persons who went abroad through the agency also sought police intervention to help their wards, who were suffering in foreign countries, to return to India and to initiate action against the firm.
