KATHMANDU: Some 126 Nepalis stranded in war-torn Libya have been rescued with the help of Indian government.
Indian mission in Tripoli repatriated them after Nepali Embassy in Cairo requested the Indian mission seeking assistance for evacuation, reported Press Trust of India quoting official at Indian Ministry of External Affairs on Saturday.
They were working with M/s Doosan Heavy Industry and Construction in Sirte.
The workers were understood to have been staying without visa and working with the company illegally as they were not originally recruited by them.
Therefore, they were abandoned by the company, the report said.
The Indian Ambassador in Tripoli personally coordinated the efforts to facilitate evacuation of the Nepali citizens, the report further added.
The Embassy contacted the Libyan Labor Minister and explained to him the position with a request to issue a letter to Libyan Immigration authorities to facilitate their departure through Libya.
