I am currently facing problem with Bilkish Associates, I was employed by one of the leading bank long 4-5 years back. I had take a loan during my employment. But unfortunetly my employment was terminated by the bank. As per Saudi rules my passport was in Bank's Custody, so i could not fly back to India.
The HR managers at the bank told me to clear my due and collect the passport. Naturally, since I did not have my passport my work permit was also expired i copuld not work anywhere i somehow survived 1.5 years in Saudi. I filed a case against bank challenging my termination which i lost. Finally I arranged some funds from India and paid around 25% of the outstanding debt and the HR managers out of sympathy agreed to release me on final exit visa and gave me passport only after i made the deposit.
As it is clear they would not have given me passport unless i paid the amount , Now i am in India for 3 years and Bilkhish Associates is calling me i connection of the recovery of that amount.
Since the bank released my passport I was under impression that the case has been settled.
My question is can a company in India attempt to recover a loan that was taken in Saudi and from a Saudi bank? Is it legally correct? If not what can i do now? Should I approach police or hire a lawyer?
Please help me.
