“Since three months my wife is facing trouble and she is also being assaulted by people there. They are not providing her food and medicines. She is also not allowed to come back to India although her visit visa has expired. She is being detained there illegally” said her husband Ghulam Hyder.
He also said, “We have filed a complaint to Falaknuma police about this with the help of Mr Amjadullah Khan. We never knew what to do. It was Mr Khan who helped us. He has also requested the external affairs minister to get my wife back to India.”
Mr Amjadullah Khan said, “It’s very important to understand that the number of migrants facing problems is increasing in Telangana and it’s the need of the hour that the government of Telangana addresses this issue and orders the police to book these agents under the PD Act. The agents are now being booked only for cheating. They are coming out on bail and continuing their business. Strong action should be taken against the agents.”
Inspector of Falaknuma said, “We have booked the agents under Section 420 and are hopeful that the external affairs ministry will help the family”, as reported in DC.
