A woman, who was sexually abused while working as a domestic help in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), returned to country with a six-month-old baby boy.

The 32-year-old woman alleged that she has given birth to the baby as she was abused sexually and tortured by her employer.

At one stage of her sexual torture she became pregnant. Later, she was sent to jail though she did not commit any crime. Later, she has given birth to the baby in the jail.

Around six months later she was forced to leave the country without giving her justice. Upon her arrival at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport on Tuesday, she narrated her dreadful experience to an official of Armed Police Battalion. Later, she was handed over to the BRAC Migration Programme.

She is now staying at the BRAC Learning Center in the capital’s Ashkona as she doesn’t want to return to her family with her baby boy fearing social stigma.
