In a major revelation for the Kabirdham administration, it is learnt that over two dozen of the Baigas may be forcibly employed in Bengaluru.
The issue came to light when a woman could somehow escape the clutches of the tormentors and reached back home.
It is she who told the administration about how the two dozen of tribal community are forcibly held there working for a juice company.
It is said that the company somehow came in contact with the tribals of the community and lured them to Tamil Nadu in lieu of Rs 10000 a month, sources informed citing the complaint.
The tribal may be hostage since past many months.
The administration upon being tipped off, has decided to despatch a team for Bengaluru to rescue the hostages.
