Shepherd_and_his_FlockAn Indian national working as a shepherd in Kuwait has been found dead in a remote desert area in Kuwait, with reports saying he died of thirst and de-hydration.  The body was found on May 28 in the desert area in Qashaniya, the Indian Embassy in the country has said.  Preliminary investigations suggest that the Indian national died of thirst and de-hydration as his body was found in a very arid spot, media reports said.

“As a matter of policy, the Embassy is not allowing Indian nationals in Kuwait to work as shepherds so as to protect their welfare. Unfortunately, there have been some instances reported where Indian nationals have been forced to work as shepherds in desert areas of Kuwait or taken against their will to Saudi Arabia,” the embassy said in a statement.

The Embassy said it had advised Indian nationals in Kuwait not to take up employment as shepherds.

“Those who have been forced to work as shepherds in Kuwait in violation of their work contract, should immediately contact the Embassy for assistance in the matter/redressal of their grievances,” the statement said.

    i want to ask a question before going directly to my public announcement here. If I got a legal loan online it would be as easy as it will refer to all these built / duplicate loan testimonials that I read online, so why did my charming husband refuse to apply for a loan online five times after being scammed of 4000 euros? All that stopped when a family friend referred us to a reputable loan company known as Jackson Ben Loan Firm. I was surprised to get the amount of my loan of 45,000 euros so i know he is trustworthy and understanding.
