BEIJING: Two Indian traders, abducted and tortured after their trading firm’s owner fled without paying his dues to businessmen in south China’s Yiwu city last year, have been forced to live on Shanghai streets since Tuesday after the Indian embassy stopped paying their hotel bills.
The two – Deepak Raheja and Shyamsunder Agarwal – had been staying in a hotel after the embassy rescued them from captivity and bought them back from Yiwu. “We are on the streets. We have no money for the hotel as the embassy has stopped supporting us,” Agarwal said. “Please help us go home to India.”
