Phnom Penh, 24th May.
 In a commendable effort, the Indian Embassy in Cambodia has successfully rescued the first batch of 60 Indian nationals who fell victim to a job scam perpetrated by fraudulent employers. The embassy announced on Thursday that these individuals have safely returned home with the assistance of Cambodian authorities.

The rescue operation was initiated after authorities intervened at a location known as Jinbei-4 on May 20, in coordination with authorities in Sihanoukville. Expressing gratitude for the support received, the embassy reiterated its commitment to assisting Indians abroad.

The embassy had previously issued advisories cautioning Indian nationals against unauthorized agents for job placements in Cambodia. Emphasizing the importance of securing employment through approved channels recognized by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), the embassy underscored the risks associated with falling prey to fraudulent schemes.

Highlighting their ongoing efforts, the embassy disclosed that the rescued individuals were relocated from Sihanoukville to Phnom Penh, where necessary arrangements for their return home were facilitated, including travel documents.

Efforts to repatriate Indian nationals trapped in scam centers through unscrupulous means remain a priority for the Indian government and its embassy in Cambodia. As part of their proactive measures, the embassy has established a temporary control room in Sihanoukville and continues to provide assistance and guidance to those in need.

With over 360 Indian nationals rescued or repatriated through the embassy’s intervention, the Indian government reaffirms its commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of its citizens abroad.
