The Police have warned of foreign employment rackets after one such racket was busted yesterday.

Police Spokesman, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Ajith Rohana said that they continue to receive information about such rackets.

He said that obtaining employment overseas is not easy and there is a process which needs to be followed.

The Police Spokesman also said that only registered and approved institutions can recruit people for overseas employment.
