Recent actions by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) have led to the dismantling of a major human trafficking network. Coordinated efforts and extensive investigations have resulted in the registration of cases against multiple agents involved in illicit recruitment.

He emphasized the inherent risks associated with such arrangements and reiterated the government’s commitment to facilitating the safe return of those involved.

The MEA remains in constant communication with Russian authorities, advocating for the swift release and repatriation of the duped Indian nationals. Efforts are underway to locate and assist approximately 20 individuals who have reached out to the MEA seeking assistance in this regard.
