Trafficked Indian women return home

Two Hyderabad women, Nuzhat Begum and Naseem Begum are rescued after being trafficked to Saudi Arabia. Nuzhat traveled to the Gulf when she was promised a job at a hospital at 1,200 riyals a month. Instead, she was trafficked throughout the region and forced to work as a maid. Her sponsor denied her food and proper accommodation. Naseem's ordeal at the hands of her sponsor lasted thirty months. The women returned home with the help of the Indian embassy and the ministry of external affairs.
