A family has appealed to Union Minister Sushma Swaraj for help reports that her Hyderabad-based sister was stranded in UAE’s Riyadh.
Rehmath Begum informed the source that her sister, named Ghousia Begum was sent to Riyadh by an agent on the pretext of a prestigious job offer.
She claims that “an agent Tabassum and three other agents had approached my sister Ghousia Begum and offered her a good job in Riyadh saying she will not have much work and can earn well there.”
“My sister left for Saudi Arabia on March 14, 2019. When she reached there, her employers started taking heavy work from her and are torturing her continuously. They are also not providing adequate food and water to her. They are also making my sister work in four to five different houses as a housemaid,” added the victim’s sister.
Rehmath Begum informed that her family members tried to contact the agent, who has sent her sister to UAE, but the agent was unreachable.
She also claims, “My sister’s employers are not letting her to speak with us. I request External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to rescue my sister as she is facing problems there and is not keeping well.”
