Dubai, June 1 (IANS) Lawyers in Bahrain will train Indian social workers to familiarise them with the laws of the country.

According to Mohan Kumar, India's ambassador to Bahrain, social workers should be aware of the laws of Bahrain to help members of the Indian community in need, the Gulf Daily News reported Saturday.

"We will invite all social workers to the embassy where they will be briefed by embassy lawyers, including Bahrainis. This will help them give proper advice to those in trouble," Kumar was quoted as saying.

There are around 420,000 expatriate Indians in Bahrain, many of them blue collar workers.
