Iranian shipping companies are forcing migrant Indian sailors into bondage, they say

Thousands of Indian men are lured to Iran every year by recruiters guaranteeing salaries and experience aboard reputable ships and often promising postings to other Middle Eastern countries, say Indian sailors and maritime activists. Instead, the sailors say, they are sent to Iran and put out to sea, where they are overworked, deprived of enough food and sometimes forced to transport drugs and goods under international sanctions.
