A woman who went to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to work as a domestic aide had been tortured by inserting pins in various parts of her body, it was reported.
The woman was admitted to the Nuwara Eliya General Hospital for treatment upon her return.
After removing two pins from the body, the doctors have told her to return to the hospital next month to undergo another operation to remove the remaining pins.
The victim is a 30-year-old mother from Henfold, Lindula Ganigal Estate in Talawakelle.
She had been beaten by the employers who have inserted pins in her arms, thighs and several other parts of the body.
The woman said that she was tortured because she did not know Arabic.
