Saudi Arabia again deported 120 Bangladeshi workers on Friday, as part of its crackdown on undocumented workers.
The workers landed at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 11:25pm yesterday.
On Thursday, Saudi Arabia deported 130 workers. A total of 250 workers came back home from Saudi Arabia in two days.
Brac Migration Programme in association with Expatriate Welfare Desk provided the deported workers with food and emergency aid.
Anowar Hossain, a deported worker, hailing from Dhaka's Dohar upazila, said: "I worked at a shop in Saudi Arabia with legal work permit, known as Akama in Arabic. It was valid for 11 more months. But I was deported forcibly straight from the shop."
Many workers said that many workers are being deported from Saudi Arabia despite having legal work permits. Police arrested them on their way back home from their workplace.
The workers also alleged even after contacting the employers, they did not take any action. The workers with legal work permits are also being sent to the detention camps.
About 11,000 to 12,000 workers returned to Bangladesh from Saudi Arabia in 2019.
