'Unacceptable,' Says India After Woman's Arm is Chopped Off By Saudi Employer

Saudi Arabia,9 Oct 2015,

58-year-old Kasthuri Munirathinam from India had her arm chopped off by her Saudi employer who she was trying to escape from. She had moved to Saudi Arabia 3 months ago to work as a domestic help. Her family in Tamil Nadu, India, says she was being tortured and starved by her employer. They say the employer was angry that Kasthuri had complained about torture and abuse she was facing there, and how she was often starved. After the attack Kasthuri fell down and also had spinal injuries. India has asked Saudi Arabia to file attempted murder charges and is looking to bring Kasthuri back to India once she stabilizes.
