About 6 months back, Mangaluru based agents Jaber and Anwar had taken Reshma Suvarna to Kuwait for employment. Once there, she was handed over to a Kuwaiti family, to work as a maid. The Kuwaiti agent, who introduced the woman to the family, was given 1000 Kuwaiti Dinars as commission.

But soon after coming under the family’s care, Reshma’s life became a nightmare. She was made to do chores from early morning up to midnight and was often denied food. On completing her work, she would be locked in a dark room. She was not allowed to go out and was also restricted from maintaining contact with her family.

But all her attempts were to no avail. they contacted Jaber and Anwar, they failed to receive any response from them. Therefore, as a last resort the family members appealed Indians settled in Kuwait to help find Reshma.
