'We were tricked'

'We were tricked'

SINGAPORE - Four Indian cooks claim that their Singapore employer cooked up a story to get them out of the country.

The four Indian foreign workers thought they were going to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for a bakery course on Aug 5.

Instead, they were driven to the Low Cost Carrier Terminal near Kuala Lumpur International Airport, shown tickets for flights bound for India and told to fly home immediately.

Mr Harpreet, 27, said: "How can our boss do this to us? We were tricked."

We are not using the cooks' and their employer's real names to protect their identity.

Incensed, Mr Harpreet said they ran away and jumped into a taxi to Johor Baru.

They reached Singapore at about 5pm that day and another cook, Mr Arjun, 25, made a police report at Kolam Ayer Neighbourhood Police Post at Geylang Bahru about five hours later.

The police have confirmed the report.
