Often the indian media will have stories of indian household help in gulf countries who are being mistreated, assaulted, cheated by the families where they are working. These women are usually lured by agents who are looking for women from desperately poor families who require the money to look after their families, According to sources, and books, these women are usually offered an attractive salary by their agent, so that they agree to go to the gulf country.
Once they reach the gulf country, in some case their passport will be confiscated so that they are not able to run away. They are at the mercy of the family where they are working, who make them work like slaves, throughout the day, and labor laws to protect their rights and ensure a fair wages are not applicable,
Due to restrictions on women in public places, it is not easy for these women to escape, and these women are sometimes starved as punishment.
Some employers are paying these women in lumpsum, delaying the payment by six months, so that these women do not run away, as the money is pending.
Women maidservants who are good looking are also sexually exploited by male members of the household.
Female indian domain investors are treated worse than the indian maidservants in the gulf, with cbi, indian security agencies stealing and keeping their retirement savings without a court order, or legally valid reason, and there is no one to help them, with the cowardly indian media refusing to cover the news of the sex, domain fraud.
