Firslty make it clear whether that is a firm or a company since a copmany can not have partners but it is run by directors. If it is a firm then sue the partner who is in india. all of them will be held liable for the said arrears in spite of not being in india. you will be entitled to get your arrears back from the partner residining in india and the said partner will have to recover it from th other partners.

if it is a company then u ll ve to proceed against the company and u ll be paid out of the funds of the company.....in case of firm the partners are individually liable.
as far as making complaints to the embassies i wont suggest u to do such type of things......u ll end up waisting a lot of ur time...better remain concerned with the rent and possession of the property.
