A Nepali housemaid is reported to have died after her Kuwaiti employer hit her on the head with a bathroom tile, according to this report from Nepali media house Kantipur.

Investigations show that the Nepali woman had started work as a housemaid just one month before the attack. The Kuwaiti woman is reported to have attacked the maid for not understanding her language. Paramedics arrived at the scene after receiving a report that a maid was injured, but she was found dead when they arrived on the scene.

A case has now been registered against the Kuwaiti woman, who is now in police custody for investigation.

    Would anyone know what are the requirements from getting a housemaid from Nepal into the UAE, the sponsor is Indian? Do they require any special sticker, stamp/approval from the Nepal Government? We had just sponsored a house maid from Nepal residing in India and she was not allowed to board the aircraft because she did not have a POE sticker or something? Any idea as to how to get thi9s done, any easy way out since we have spent on the visa and now we are stuck.

    after reading all the comments i am shocked how biased these comments are.Yes there has been a murder and yes she should be punished going by islamic law that women will be executed.why do you have to say all people from that country are animals, becouse like most places around the word there are good and there are the bad you cannot see the actions of the one and say that all of them are like that and let me tell you that women is not a real kuwaiti becouse from the 1.3millions Said kuwaitis only 300k are from the respectful families the rest just lived in this area on got an kuwaiti passport. And these girls chose to work over seas because the pay is good don’t go spouting nonsense no one is forcing them to work and no one is raping them.
