NGO 'rescues' ill-treated maid

“With the help of the police, we rescued Aruna, a native of Hassan, who was working as a live-in maid in the house for more than a year,” Geetha Menon, Convenor of Stree Jagrithi Samithi said. She alleged Aruna was beaten up, verbally abused and overburdened with work. Moreover, she had not been paid her salary for the past seven months.

“After Aruna gave a statement to police that she did not wish to work in the house for the stated reasons, she was rescued from there,” Geetha said. Police said they went with the NGO but the maid did not give any complaint and instead gave a statement that she was unwilling to work in the house.
