MEA Sushma Swaraj asks concerned authorities to take strict action against illegal agents

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today asked the concerned authorities to take strict action against illegal agents who are sending people on fake promises to foreign countries. 

Addressing a national conference in New Delhi on NRI marriages and trafficking of women and children, Mrs Swaraj said people are suffering and being exploited in the name of good opportunities by these agents. 

She said, there is a need to create awareness among people that they must opt for government registered agents only. 

The minister requested the states to identify such illegal agents who are bypassing all rules and regulations. Mrs Swaraj said her ministry has saved a large number of females who were trafficked in the lure of jobs. 

On the issue of NRI marriages, she said efforts are being made to provide justice to those females who have suffered in such marriages. She asked people to carefully verify the NRI grooms before the marriage. 

She said, in Punjab alone more than 15,000 females have been left by their NRI husbands which is a matter of concern.
