The victim women were advised by a woman acquaintance to go to Saudi Arabia for work. The women went to Saudi Arabia through an intermediary in Mumbai. The middleman there sent them to do housework in different places. However, they were beaten up by the house owners. They were also denied wages and starved. The victim got the email ID of the State Commission for Women. One of these women emailed there and requested to be released.
