Kathmandu : At least 14 Nepali illegal migrants returned home from Malaysia at the initiative of Nepali Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

The illegal workers were kept at various detention camps after being ‘undocumented’ and returned yesterday, after the Nepali mission arranged free-plane tickets with financial support from the Foreign Employment Promotion Board, reports the Himalayan Times.

According to Nepali Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, as many as 501 ‘undocumented’ workers have returned to Nepal on free tickets. The migrant worker becomes illegal in another country generally if they lose their passports, or flee their country. (ANI)
