Indian womans arm chopped off by Saudi employer


The Indian Embassy in Riyadh has taken up the matter with the Saudi Foreign Office and asked for strict action in the matter.

The incident of a Saudi employer allegedly chopping off an Indian help’s hand, has evoked strong condemnation from India which has demanded that a case of attempted murder be lodged against the culprit.

The Hindu had reported on Wednesday that the family members of Kasturi have petitioned to the Vellore Collector R. Nanthagopal to take urgent steps to rescue her.

Kasturi’s son Mohan is expected to submit a petition in the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister’s cell in Chennai on Friday.


Terming the incident as “unacceptable”, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said the matter has been taken up with Saudi authorities.

“We are very much disturbed over the brutal manner in which Indian lady has been treated in Saudi Arabia,” Ms. Swaraj said.
