Indian leaps off balcony to escape allegedly abusive employer

Dubai: Three domestic maids, including one Indian, have managed to escape from their employers, who allegedly forced them to work round-the-clock, by jumping from balconies of their homes in Bahrain.

The women, an Indian and two Indonesians, suffered minor injuries and are being treated at a hospital in Bahrain’s capital city of Manama.

Official documents of the Indian woman, only known as Anusha, shows she is 35-years-old. However, a probe revealed she is only 19.

The woman, who hails from Andhra Pradesh, started working for a Bahraini family last month, but claims she was forced to flee because she was being physically abused, the Gulf Daily
News reported on Tuesday.

According to the report, the three women said they were being exploited, overworked and physically harassed.

“The cases of the two Indonesian domestic workers were referred by us to their embassy, while we are following up the case of the Indian woman who had to undergo surgery on her hand and fractured her legs,” the Migrant Workers Protection Society (MWPS) chairwoman Marietta Dias said.
