"61 Indian workers stranded in Saudi Arabia, Gujurat Sarpanch seeks MEA's intervention", 20 Sep 2019

[The head of the men's home village, Ansar Dilawarbhai Rathod, said] “These men have not been paid for months neither have their work permit been renewed. They are stuck inside the campus of a Riyadh-based company"...
