Trapped: 300 Malayali Women

From Sahil Online:
Almost 300 Malayali women who have been recruited illegally to Gulf countries as housemaids and forced into immoral activities are trapped in the Gulf countries.

According to a News portal of Kerala, Souda of Pathanamthitta and Ahamed of Kasargod together run the sex racket in UAE. People came to know about the sex racket when some traumatic stories were revealed by a woman, who moved the Kerala High Court.

The woman approached the court demanding an officer not less than the rank of an IG to probe the case. The plea was considered by a division bench of Acting Chief Justice P R Raman and Justice C N Ramachandran Nair.

The portal said in his report that the agents lure women from poor families promising them jobs in Gulf countries. A small amount would be given to their families after considering their poor financial condition. The passports have to be surrendered once you reach Gulf. The women can contact their parents only in the presence of these agents.
