Although police have reported that just 126 people were rescued from the plant on Monday, workers told BBC News there were more than 300 people being held against their will.
Police only learned of the situation after one of the workers made contact with the Global Human Rights Network.
Although reports circulated that the plant was shut down after the raid, Hassan Sufi, a factory official, told a local outlet that claims alleging the factory was closed are false, saying, “Our company was never shut down even after the police invaded our premises and evacuated some staff on Monday.”
Some workers have claimed that they were denied entry to the plant upon their return on Wednesday, and that only a few men were allowed inside to resume working.
The Global Human Rights Network is currently working to make sure all workers are fairly compensated for their long hours spent confined to the factory.
