SM Krishna meets 2 stranded Indians in China

NEW DELHI: Foreign minister SM Krishna met the two Indian traders stranded in China after they were held for not paying dues to their Chinese suppliers. Krishna assured them that he would raise the issue with his Chinese counterpart Yang Jiechi on Thursday.

Krishna is in Beijing to attend the SCO summit. He met the two Indian traders, Shyam Sunder Agrawal and Deepak Raheja, who were released from illegal custody from the Chinese suppliers in Yiwu after India’s intervention.

The Indian Embassy in Beijing has spent more than Rs 13 lakh from the Indian Welfare Community funds for legal services provided to the traders and also for their boarding and lodging.

Krishna had discussed the case even earlier with Yang when he visited China in February. Together, the two Indians have been asked to pay 10 million yuan ($1.5 million) to local traders. China has told India that cases against the two Indians would not be withdrawn until they repay the entire amount.

The local traders took them into custody last December after their owner fled without making payment for the supplies secured.
