Bahrain starts investigations into Indian waitresses case

Written by: Staff

Dubai, July 4 (UNI) Bahrain labour officials have begun investigations into the case of three Indian waitresses from Kerala, who were rescued by the police after allegedly being forced into slavery and prostitution by a local restaurant.

Their criminal complaint said they were locked in their apartment between shifts and forced to entertain customers by the Indian manager and a female supervisor of the restaurant, who forced them to perform sexual acts and drink with customers.

Jalaja C Nair, Biji Palliparambil Chacko and Sai Chandra Babu, aged 24, 25 and 35, claim the supervisor kept an eye out for undercover police, and signalled to hide them by tapping the spoon on the plate if a customer was suspected to be a policeman in plainclothes, news reports said.

The women, who were promised Rs 12,300 a month, in addition to free food and accommodation, complained that they were paid only Rs 5,500.
