New Delhi: Three Indian youths, who were allegedly physically tortured by their employer in Saudi Arabia, will return to India early Saturday, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Friday.

“All the three Indian workers are reaching Trivandrum from Saudi Arabia by Flt FZ 439 at 02.30 hrs on 26 December 2015,” Sushma Swaraj tweeted.

On Wednesday, the minister said India had approached the Saudi police and got the youths police protection.

According to reports, the three youths, hailing from Haripad in Kerala’s Alappuzha district, were taken to Saudi Arabia by a placement agency on false job promises.

A video recorded by one of the youths and circulating on WhatsApp shows their Saudi employer beating them with a wooden plank.
