Hyderabad: External Affairs Ministry rescued a Hyderabad-based woman who was trafficked to Oman on the pretext of job in the Gulf country.
“A Hyderabadi agent approached me and promised a good job in Oman with Rs. 25,000 per month salary. On believing him, I left for the Gulf nation on December 9, 2018,” Farah Naz, the rescued victim told ANI.
She said after reaching Oman she was received by an unknown person at the airport who later sent her to a remote area. “There I was been kept in an agent’s office where they used to lock me from outside,” the victim added.
According to the victim, she was also sent to various places to work as a housemaid where she was tortured and was not even provided with adequate food.
“They didn’t even take me to a hospital when I was suffering from an infection on my body,” she said adding that she was not even paid remuneration for three months.
Naz revealed, “Later, my mother wrote a letter to EAM Sushma Swaraj and urging her to rescue me as I was in a horrible condition. Acting on which, the Indian Embassy in Muscat spoke to my Omani agent and ensured my return to Hyderabad.
She also thanked Swaraj for bringing her back to her homeland. “I thank EAM Sushma Swaraj for helping me in coming back to India,” she concluded.
