'Indian govt trying yo rescue Indians forced in cyber fraud in Cambodia'



The Indian government recently disclosed its efforts to rescue its citizens lured in employment schemes in Cambodia, where they were coerced into participating in cyber fraud activities.


According to Randhir Jaiswal, spokesperson for India's Ministry of External Affairs, the Indian embassy in Cambodia has collaborated closely with local authorities to facilitate the rescue and repatriation of approximately 250 Indian nationals. Notably, 75 individuals have been rescued in the past three months, reported PTI.


Jaiswal's response comes in light of news reports claiming that over 5,000 Indian nationals are currently trapped in Cambodia and are being compelled to engage in cyber fraud activities targeting individuals in their homeland.


Jaiswal said, "We are also working with Cambodian authorities and with agencies in India to crack down on those responsible for these fraudulent schemes." 


According to the spokesperson, both the Indian government and its embassy in Cambodia have issued multiple advisories to raise awareness about these scams among citizens.


"We remain committed to helping all those Indian nationals in Cambodia who seek our support. We are also working with Cambodian authorities and with agencies in India to crack down on those responsible for these fraudulent schemes," Jaiswal said.
