KUWAIT CITY, March 12: Nepali police have arrested a man for his alleged involvement in human trafficking and rescued four women, reports Al-Rai daily. The women were held captive in a room rented by the suspect who had allegedly assured them lucrative jobs in Kuwait.
A police source said the arrest came after a woman, who was sent overseas for work by the suspect, returned from Oman and filed a complaint against him. In her complaint, the woman accused the suspect of sending her to Oman on the pretext of foreign employment and she discovered it was a pure case of human trafficking.
A preliminary police investigation revealed the suspect was targeting gullible women and sending them to the Gulf countries without acquiring labor permits over the past two years. The suspect has been referred to the concerned authorities for further investigation.
