A woman here on Monday petitioned authorities seeking help to bring back her daughter allegedly being exploited by her employers in Riyadh.

In her petition to district Collector K Rajamani, Thenmozhi of Kaundanpalayam said her 26-year old daughter was sent to Riyadh three months ago by two agents from Thanjavur and a Dubai-based man to work as a babysitter in a house for a monthly salary of Rs 20,000.

However, her daughter was now being made to work almost 24 hours a day in three houses without much break, affecting her health, she said adding the agents were demanding Rs two lakh which they claimed had been spent on sending her to Riyadh.

The woman requested the collector to take steps for bringing back her daughter safely.
