A woman from Hyderabad who was rescued from Oman where she was allegedly being forced to work as a domestic help, thanked the External Affairs Minister (EAM), Sushma Swaraj, on Friday.
The woman, Reshma speaking to ANI on her being sent to Dubai along with her daughter Niloufer by an agent on the pretext of a good job by an agent but later was sent to Oman, said, “We left for Dubai on 28 December 2017. The agent said our salary would be Rs 20,000 per month and after landing there, they took us to an office and kept us there. Later, they took away my daughter for work and since then, I have no contact with her. They kept me for ten days there and shifted me to Oman and they made me work in three houses at a time.”
Revealing that she was locked in her room for two days without any food or water when she refused to work, Reshma said that she managed to escape later and approached the Indian Embassy for help.
Thanking Sushma Swaraj for the Indian embassy’s assistance, she now has requested her to rescue her daughter.
