A woman who took up a job in Oman to support the family after her husband lost a leg in an accident was being allegedly tortured by her employer. Her two school going children on Monday sought government help to rescue her in Madurai.
Abinaya (13) and Rahul (11) made a representation to District Collector Veeraraghav Rao during the grievances day meeting at the Collectorate here and sought assistance to bring their mother Mekala back home.
The children, who were accompanied by their grandmother, said their father lost one leg in an accident following which Mekala went to Oman for a job through an agent three months ago to support the family.
