Brac Migration Programme chief Shariful Hasan said in January of the current year a total of 3,635 Bangladeshis, including 175 women, were sent back to the country from the KSA.
Many of the deportees went to the Middle East country with the hope of good jobs and better life, said Shariful said adding, "Almost all of them returned home empty handed."
Besides, bodies of eight workers arrived to the country from Saudi Arabia and Malaysia on Thursday night.
With these, a total of 409 bodies of Bangladeshi workers arrived here from different countries of the world.
