The Indian Embassy in Bahrain announced her rescue on Twitter hours after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, in a tweet, directed the Indian Ambassador in the Gulf nation to intervene in the case.
The Indian mission said the woman has been rescued by Bahraini authorities.
Humanitarian organisation ‘Justice Upheld’ had tweeted that an Indian woman has been enslaved by her employer in Bahrain and she feared for her life.
The organisation, quoting the “enslaver”, said he was going to keep her for at least 25 days as he had paid ‘lots of money for her’.
“He is extremely annoyed that the matter has been reported to the Indian authorities. We are concerned about her safety,” the organisation said.
Soon after the Indian Embassy in Bahrain, headed by Ambassador Alok Kumar, tweeted that the Mission has initiated action to rescue her.
However, Swaraj asked Kumar for immediate intervention, saying the situation appeared to be serious.
“Alok – I know you are working for her rescue. The situation appears to be serious. This requires immediate intervention on your part. Pls keep me informed,” Swaraj tweeted.
Alok – I am proud of you. Please convey my gratitude to Bahraini authorities for their help in rescuing an Indian citizen. https://t.co/ioalTLqUwM
