She was kept in a cellar along with 50 other women from different countries and asked to work in four to five houses without proper accommodation or food. She fell ill and her sugar level rose to 400 and was denied any medical facility. She was beaten very badly when she wanted to return. She called up her husband and told the entire story. She even didn’t know in which country she landed.
Her husband Gulam Hyder along with her daughters met MBT Spokesman Amjed Ullah Khan for necessary help. Mr. Khan helped them to lodge a complaint with local police (Falaknuma Police Station vide FIR No: 76/2017 dated 12/04/2017) and the family met Satnarayana, ISF, DCP (SZ) also.
Mr. Khan took the family along with him to K. T. Rama Rao, Minister for NRI, Government of Telangana, and the General Administration – NRI Dept. wrote a letter to the Ministry of External Affairs, Govt of India, on 2nd June 2017 and later the case was handed over to Criminal Investigation Department, Govt of Telangana.
Amjed Ullah Khan wrote a letter to Sushma Swaraj, Minister for External Affairs, who responded and asked the Indian Embassy in Oman to help her return. The employer was not ready to let her go and demanded Rs. 3 lakh. She was beaten very badly and sexually assaulted many times by the employer in Muscat, Oman. After much persuasion she could return after six months. She lost much weight and is very ill today when landed at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport. Her family was very happy to see her alive.
