First of 32 trapped labourers returns from Malaysia

Kolkata: Sanjay Mallick, one of the labourers from Bengal who had been trapped in Malaysia for more than a month, is finally returning home on an Air Asia flight on Sunday night. Mallick was one of the two victims who had sent an audio message through an app to the National Anti Trafficking Committee (NATC), seeking assistance on Friday. "We managed to contact the supervisor of the company who was supposed to employ Sanjay and I had a two hour conversation with him in the morning, regarding the strong measures that are being taken for their rescue. Soon after this, I was contacted by Sanjay from the airport, saying that he has been handed over his passport and visa and dropped at the local airport. We arranged for his tickets and he is returning home. Once he is rescued, it will be easier for us to locate the other persons who are trapped there," said Sheikh Jinnar Ali, national chairman of NATC.
