Tokyo police have arrested three men on suspicion of snatching a man to make him do decontamination work in Fukushima Prefecture.
Jiro Yonekura and two others are accused of abducting the 24-year-old victim and confining him in March.
Investigators say Yonekura forced the man to work to repay a debt.
They also say the victim worked for two days at a company run by one of the suspects. He had to remove radioactive fallout from the 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
He is said to have received about 10 dollars per day.
