Hyderabadi woman rescued from Oman thanks EAM Swaraj

[India], May 15 (ANI): A Hyderabadi woman named Kulsum Banu, who was trafficked to Oman on the pretext of a job, has been rescued after five months.Banu thanked External Affairs Ministers Sushma Swaraj for her help. My daughter has complained about the matter to EAM Sushma Swaraj through a letter. After that, Indian Embassy paid a fine amounting to a sum of five thousand Riyal which was imposed on me and sent me back to India. I reached Hyderabad on May 8 with the help of EAM Sushma Swaraj and Indian Embassy in Oman. I would like to thank Sushma Swaraj and Indian Embassy, she said while speaking to ANI.Recalling how she was sent to Oman on the pretext of a job, Banu said, I was in search of a job and an agent named Abrar had approached me and offered me the job of a beautician in the parlour. He (Abrar) also said that I will be paid Rs 30,000 per month as salary in Muscat. After accepting his offer, they sent me to Muscat on December 17, 2018. After going there, I realised that there was no beautician job. My employers made me work as a housemaid. Even then I worked for one month and later I refused to work there, she added.According to Banu, her employers handed her over to a local agent in Muscat who took her to his home. She alleged that the agent locked her in a room for ten days without food and also thrashed her several times. Later I approached Indian Embassy there. The officials kept me in the embassy for four months. Then I contacted my daughter and explained to her my problem, she said. (ANI)
