KATHMANDU: Nepal Police in coordination with the Nepali Embassy in Abu Dhabi recently rescued four Nepali migrant workers who were facing labour exploitations and life-threatening situations in the United Arab Emirates.

The Metropolitan Crime Division of Nepal Police said Birendra and Rabindra's uncle, Sanjay Kumar Jhapa, had filed a complaint with Nepal Police that his nephews were not given works as per the contract in Dubai.

Further, they were not paid on time, forced to work for more hours and put in the environment where their life could be in danger.

The trio arrived Nepal on Monday.

In another case, police also rescued Thakuri from the Gulf city after she was denied the right to return home.

While she reported sickness and willingness to come back to Nepal, police said, she was instead being sent to Oman.
