32 Indian women cheated, stranded in UAE

Thirty-two Indian women, stranded for months at a shelter home here after being conned by India-based recruitment agencies promising decent jobs, are desperately seeking repatriation, Saudi media reported on Wednesday.

The women, who speak fluent English and are mostly from southern India, were conned into believing they were being hired for jobs other than domestic servants in Saudi Arabia.

Many of these women have escaped their employers after being overworked, mistreated or made to live in substandard conditions with poor and delayed pay.

They are now lodged at a shelter home operated by Interior Ministry in Riyadh.

Some of these women are falling ill, while the condition of Satyavati, another maid at the shelter, is deteriorating, Arab News reported.

Officials have been unable to track the recruitment agencies that sent them to the Kingdom.
