Around 80 men and women from different parts of Bihar were lured by two agents to work at the brick kiln where they were treated like bonded labour, claimed Nirmal Gorana, general secretary of Bandhua Mukti Morcha, which is supporting their agitation.

"They were treated like slaves and exploited as bonded labours," Gorana said.

Morcha president Swami Agnivesh has urged the Haryana chief secretary and other authorities for rehabilitation and justice to the labourers.

The protesters need to be paid compensation besides being helped in going back to their native places in Bihar, said Gorana.
