A 25-year-old Hyderabadi woman who went to Saudi Arabia to work as a domestic help was allegedly tortured to death. The woman, identified as Asima Khatoon, was reportedly kept there illegally after her visa expired.
Asima Khatoon’s family members were informed about the death on Thursday when an unknown person called her mother from Riyadh and informed that Asima was no more.
A few weeks back, in a phone call Asima asked her family to rescue her as she was being harassed mentally and physically.
The Telangana government had written to the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) at the behest of the deceased’s family to rescue her from her employer and repatriate her back to Hyderabad.
Telangana Police has written to Saudi authorities seeking details of her death.
