A tweet to Sushma Swaraj brings Tripura man safely home from Saudi Arabia

A 32-year old man from Tripura was rescued by the Indian mission in Saudi Arabia after he complained about being ill treated by his employer in Saudi Arabia.

Gopal Das, who went to Saudi Arabia nearly two years ago for a job, landed at Agartala Airport on Thursday.

The resident of Barpathari village in South Tripura District claimed he had not received his salary for the last six months and was tortured by his employer when he asked for his salary.

Last week he called his wife and explained his situation.

His wife then contacted a person Russel Sinha in her neighbourhood, who is an expert in handling social media and spoke to Mr Das.

He asked the man to send a video of his statement.

“I was not paid, tortured and facing all trouble for past six months. even the embassy people told me that forget about your pending money and get back, there are many like me, it was only because of the tweet that I was rescued as once,” Gopal Das told.

“I uploaded his video tagging Sushma ma’am and other handles of external affairs ministry and within three days he was rescued and his tickets were done,” said Russell Sinha, a social media activist.

Mr Das returned to Delhi on Thursday night and left for his ancestral house at Barapathari in South Tripura district.
