Chennai: Kasthuri Munirathanam, the 58-year-old Indian maid whose right hand was allegedly chopped off by her employer in Saudi Arabia, returned to Chennai on Saturday, November 7.

She was accorded a warm welcome at the airport in Chennai by her relatives and state government officials. However, she was not allowed to talk to the media though she claimed she wanted to. Kasthuri was directly taken to the Rajiv Gandhi General Hospital in Chennai from the airport.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa announced a financial assistance of Rs. 10 lakh for Kasthuri. Her daughter Selvi thanked Jayalalithaa for helping her mother.

Kasthuri’s right hand was allegedly chopped off when she tried to escape from an apartment in Riyadh where her sponsor kept her reportedly to look after his 70-year-old mother. However, the sponsor claimed that her hand had to be amputated after it was badly damaged in her failed attempt to flee by jumping from a window.

The Ministry of External Affairs has assured that the Indian Mission in Riyadh would continue to pursue her case in Saudi Arabia and bring truth to light.
