A complaint has been received from one Jogi Mukesh stating that he was not able to contact his wife who had gone to Oman for work, Durg Additional Superintendent of Police (city) Abhishek Jha said on Monday.

When asked about the next course of action, he said the police would approach the Centre.

Mukesh, a resident of Durg district, told PTI that his wife Dipika went to Oman last March to work as a cook.

He also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"She came in contact with one agent Abdullah from Hyderabad through a person from Khursipar in Bhilai (Durg). The agent facilitated her journey from Kerala to Oman. We (the couple) were initially informed that my wife would work as a cook at a house there, but she was forced to do the household chores. It continued for 6-7 months. I had told her to adjust", he said.

Recently, Dipika was assaulted by her employer. Subsequently, I spoke to her employer, a woman, on the phone and asked her to send my wife back but she demanded 2-3 lakh for her release, Mukesh claimed.

"I have complained to the police. I also appeal to the prime minister sir to ensure my wife's return to India", he said.

Mukesh has shared a video of his wife in which she claimed that she was being held captive in Oman.

"Sir, my name is Dipika and I belong to Bhilai (Durg). Someone has trapped me here by telling lies. I am locked here. I was thrashed and assaulted. When I asked them to allow me to go home, they sought money 2 lakh- 3 lakh from me. They are saying they will sell me to someone else. Please save me, sir. I don't want to be sold. I am in pain. They torture me very much," she said.
