"Transfer" is at the discretion of the employer, and the employee has to take precautions for his health,  TRANSFER is not a punishment, and the employee has the option to resign if he is unwilling.  Contact a local advocate for exploring such cheating by MNC with such documents and convince him to take up the case if he finds truth of such cheating.

I agree with expert Mr. GLN Prasad that transfer is not a punishment but policy and requirement of employer, for which the employee had accepted terms and conditions of appointment/ employment (including transfer and posting)

The employee was posted in Africa for picking up pendamic only ? Is it so ? 

How does it attract the provisions of cheating upon the employee ?

The special facts, as posted, are of no consequence. The employee can get the death benefits as provided by the terms of employment.
