Dubai, Feb 17 : An Indian housemaid has gone missing from a Bahrain airport, where she was detained after her sponsor was prevented by authorities from deporting her due to alleged unpaid salary.
The Indian Embassy authorities had intervened in the matter when M T Khadeeja was taken to the airport by her sponsor to send her back to India on January 29 due to alleged non-payment of the salary.
