Mumbai, June 1, 2019 : An Indian migrant, Manik Chattopadhyay (31), working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, has alleged that he was forcefully fed beef by his employers. He got the job of cook through a consultancy firm in Mumbai, but he went there to work as he was asked to only serve food which included cooked beef. When he protested, the employers forcefully made him eat beef, he alleged in his tweets.
He also pleaded with authorities to help him come back to India.
The newly appointed External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar took note of the tweets and instructed the Indian Embassy in Jeddah to keep him updated on the issue.
“Sir I need to ur help.i need to go back india.plese help me please”, Chattopadhyay tweeted on Saturday.
Soon there was reply from Dr Suhel Ajaz Khan, Deputy Chief of Mission (Ambassador rank) Indian Embassy Riyadh, “Please give us your phone number, our welfare officer will speak to you. Don’t worry, the Embassy is there to help you.”
Jaishankar too responded, “Appreciate the prompt action on this Suhel @IndEmbRiyadh. Pl keep me apprised.”
