HYDERABAD: A woman from Hyderabad has claimed that two of her sisters, Rehana and Noor, who had gone to Saudi Arabia for employment, are stuck there. She has claimed that both are being assaulted and tortured.
Rehana and Noor's sister Farhana has appealed to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to help her. "They were taken to Saudi through an agent on the promise of a beautician job, but are now forced to work as domestic help," Farzana said.
Just a few days ago, there were reports of a Ludhiana resident Kuldeep Kaur who is stuck in Saudi Arabia since past six months. Her family had claimed that she is being given death threats and is also being beaten up in Saudi Arabia. They had reached out to Sushma Swaraj for help.
A video of 46-year-old Kuldeep Kaur had gone viral where she could be heard begging to be rescued from Saudi Arabia. In a 2-minute-long video which she sent to her daughter, Kaur said that she was duped by a travel agent who took her to Saudi Arabia.
Kuldeep reportedly said in the video that she was made to work like a slave from 6 in the morning till 10 in the night.
Stating that she was working for a Saudi couple, she also said that she was not being given food by her employers.
