Muskaan, who Amjed speaks to in the video, states that her mother Nazia Begum left for Dubai in October this year after she was promiseda good job and a salary of Rs. 50,000 per month by Shafi.
“She was later employed as a housemaid and is beaten up by Shaik. They even took a mobile phone from my mother. I last spoke to my mother 15 days back,” she alleges.
