After the Indian embassy intervened and their employer agreed to pay their pending salaries within five days, 33 migrant labourers from Jharkhand who had been trapped in Mali are set to come home this week.
The migrant labourers have been without pay for three months in Bamako, Mali’s capital, after their contractor departed with their passports.
Minister Jagarnath Mahto of Jharkhand had already requested that External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar assist in the case. Annapurna Devi, a Union minister, also discussed the issue with the Ministry of External Affairs.
The first group of workers is expected to fly back to the United States on Saturday.
