A 25-year-old Indian woman has allegedly been tortured to death by her employers in Saudi Arabia.

Asima Khatoon, who went to the Gulf state to work as a house maid, reportedly succumbed to her injuries while undergoing treatment for chest-related disease at the King Saud hospital.

She passed away after medical treatment failed to save her.

Her family claimed she had previously complained of being mentally and physically harassed.

“She went there and she was assaulted there,” a member of Ms Khatoon’s family, from Hyderabad, told News 18.

“She was kept in a room, they did not feed her. She told me she has been tortured and she asked me to bring her back at any cost,” the family member alleged.

In a phone call made several weeks ago, she reportedly asked her parents to rescue her.

Her stay had reportedly been extended by her employers illegally after her visa expired.

The Telangana state government had earlier asked India’s external affairs ministry to intervene and rescue her, India Today reported.
