Woman trapped in Oman; receives timely help from Paki national

She said that as she reached Dubai and kept there for 12 days, she was informed that work would have to be in Oman

A woman from Darjeeling in India is alleged to have been duped by her own relative in foreign country of Oman.
However, she was indeed rescued from there with the help of a stranger who turned out to be a Pakistani.

The woman in her mid thirties had gone to Dubai in November last year to work as a domestic help after a relative now based in Delhi made the arrangements.

She said that as she reached Dubai and kept there for 12 days, she was informed that work would have to be in Oman.

The placement agency seized her and then began the beatings by the employer.

The woman could speak bit of Hindi and though she pleaded to be allowed to return to India, she was told that she would have to work there for another two years.

She was even being paid half of what she had earlier been promised.

While she managed to alert the Indian Embassy there in Oman, the placement agency decided to shift the woman to another employer in a place called Salalah.

The placement agency made Sabnam board a bus, handed over her passport to the driver with a directive that she should be handed over to her new employer at a bus stand in Salalah, it emerged.

It was as she began crying on phone that the two people from Pakistan, who were also there to work as drivers enquired on what the problem was.

Upon knowing of it, one of them called her neighbour in Darjeeling.

The Indian embassy, whose officials were trying to locate this woman, was also tipped off and soon they were able to trace her location.
