Dubai: An Indian housemaid has become the owner of a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in Dubai, yup you heard it right, but unfortunately this is not a rag to riches story, this is a story of fraud and deceit.
In a contract the maid Pratibha Prakash Rai owns a firm, however, the reality is far from, in fact she is struggling to make ends meet and is clueless in regards to how she became the partner of Bargees Banu a Dubai based technical company.
I was offered Dh1,025 per month to do household chores and look after two children including a newborn. I worked for the family for 10 months without ever knowing the status of my visa. However, the couple split over differences and my services were no longer required,” Pratibha recalled.
“When I asked for my passport to cancel my visa, my employer told me that it was with his friend V.K. who runs a maintenance firm and that I was on this third man’s (V.K.) sponsorship,” she added.
“I can barely write my name and had no idea of what devious plans were being hatched behind my back. As it turned out my documents were misused to get an investor’s visa issued in my name.”
Curiously Nargees Banu, after whom Nargees Banu Technical Services is named, also works as a maid. Pratibha alleged that she and V.K. are also holding her passport and Emirates ID.
“I want to go back to Mumbai to see my ailing father who has lost his eyesight, but they refuse to cancel my visa or return my passport. I met them as recently as last week,” she said wiping off her tears.
The duo denied any wrongdoing. “We’ve been looking for Pratibha for 10 months but she remains untraceable,” said V.K.
