32 jobseekers end up in KL camp

Pass miserable days with hardly any water, food

At least 32 Bangladeshi workers are facing acute water and food crises for last five days at a camp near Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

They were sent to the camp on arrival on June 18 as nobody showed up for them at the airport.

No representative from the Malaysian agency Swas Link or the Bangladeshi recruiting agency Shikha Trade International (RL-328) went to the airport to see them, alleged the relatives of the stranded people.

When worried relations contacted the local agency, they claimed that they have been providing all kinds of assistance, including food and water, to the stranded.

But the fact is that the workers are already fasting as they have run out of food and water.

One of the workers, who flew to Kula Lumpur spending Tk 1,80,000, told UNB over the phone that they did not even know what their fault is.

"We've already run out of food, water and money: if nobody comes for our rescue, we'll not survive in the depot as we don't have money to buy food," he said.

Another worker said, "After waiting for more than 10 months after giving them money, the recruiting agency has now sent us to a hell where nobody helps us out.
