LOCAL GIRL DENIED SALARY IN SINGAPORE, FILES CASE AGAINST AGENT

GANGTOK, December 06: Little did Chensang Doma Tamang of Tibet Road know that her job in Singapore would render her penniless after months of slog.

Ms Tamang who joined her duty in Singapore on August 15, last year returned back home for twin reasons- denial of salary by her employer and denial of medical help.

After her return, she was compelled to file a case at Sadar Thana yesterday against one Sushma Sharma of Aritar, East Sikkim.

The Sadar Police arrested Sushma Sharma today, an agent in Resolve International Private Limited located at Tadong when she introduced Chensang and arranged for her employment in Singapore at a sum of Rs 9, 000 per month.

At the time of sending Chensang to Singapore, Sushma had fixed the salary and at the same time promised her to bear the whole amount in case of non-payment by her employer in Singapore.

The outstanding amount unpaid by her employer in Singapore, which should be now borne by the accused according to the complainant stood at Rs 67,000.

A case under Section 420 of the IPC has been registered against the accused and is under investigation.
