News on two Indian maids stirs uproar 43 illegals in police dragnet

KUWAIT CITY, June 1: There have been several calls to the Arab Times newspaper including one from as far as the United Arab Emirates asking for the authenticity of news circulating among the Indian expatriate community, which has apparently been spread by word of mouth, that two Indian maids (both sisters) working in Kuwait have died — one allegedly killed by her sponsor.

The callers, who could not give the source of the news, said they had heard that the maid allegedly killed by her sponsor was taking care of a child and while she was busy on the phone the child consumed Clorox and died and the sponsor in a fit of anger killed the maid.

The sponsor then reportedly showed the headless corpse of the victim to her sister and she collapsed and died of cardiac arrest.

When the Arab Times contacted the Indian Embassy a senior officer at the embassy said he had no such information. The official said the embassy when contacted the concerned authorities in Kuwait came out empty-handed. He brushed off the news as ‘baseless rumors’.

43 illegals in police dragnet: In their continuing campaign against vice, security operatives of Jahra headed by security chief, Major General Ibrahim Al-Tarah, arrested 43 people for not having identification documents. Security sources said eight of the 43 arrested were found to have violated residency law plus 16 absconders. All suspects were referred to the concerned authority.

Many arrested: The Jahra police during a surprise inspection campaign inside the Jahra Industrial Area have arrested several people for violating residence laws, reports Al-Rai daily. According to police sources, 30 expatriates have been arrested for violating the labor laws, 10 for not carrying identification papers and others for staying in the country illegally after expiry of residence permits. All those arrested have been referred to the concerned authorities.
