KATHMANDU: Department of Foreign Employment has arrested an employee at a manpower company for fleecing the people aspiring for foreign employment.
The arrested one is Bal Kumari Rai from D Centre Overseas Concern of Basundhara, Kathmandu. Department Director Ram Kumar Thapa informed that she was arrested while taking Rs 95,000 from each individual going to Qatar for jobs.
The Department team had reached the company after a complaint was lodged at the secretariat of the Minister for Labour, Employment and Social Security.
Director Thapa said no manpower company can take more than Rs 10,000 from those going to Qatar for job because free visa, free ticket scheme was implemented for it. But the manpower company was taking huge amount violating the rule.
Further investigation on the company would be launched once its proprietor returns from abroad, added Thapa.
