Nagpur Police rescue maid on house arrest who wasn’t allowed to speak, leave house for 12 years…

Nagpur Police’s Bharosa Cell rescued a 30-year-old housemaid after 12 years of confinement from the house of Madhu Khanija in Nagpur. As per the maid, the family, which owns a petrol pump at Kadbi Chowk, neither allowed her to take any break while working nor allowed her to speak or leave their house till her confinement.

The maid told cops that the owner initially for two to three years paid her salary but gradually exploiting her. They stopped paying her dues and imposed multiple restrictions on her. The maid is said to be in depression due to the physical and mental assault over the years.

Subsequently, the maid started asking Madhu for her salary, who in turn claimed that she had paid the former’s mother a sum of Rs 15000. As per the maid, Madhu wouldn’t even allow the maid to talk to her mother.

Finally, the maid somehow managed to contact her mother’s friend, who was also working as a maid at a neighbouring house and narrated her the entire ordeal. The woman then told everything to the maid’s mother, who with the help of Bharosa Cell along with the cops was rescued on February 12.

Speaking to Nation Next senior PI at Jaripatka Police Station Khushal Tijare said, “As per the complaint we’ve received by the maid, the family didn’t allow her to go out of the house and kept her in control. For now we’ve just registered a complaint registered by the maid and very soon we’ll be questioning the accused too.”
