Maid ends life at police station

By Staff

An Ethiopian housemaid used her scarf to commit a suicide at a police station in Kuwait after an abortive attempt at a prison in the Gulf emirate a month ago.

Prison guards had managed to stop the maid from committing a suicide in the last moment in Jahra area in the capital Kuwait City last month.

“She was later moved to a police station in another area…she waited for the police to go to Iftar (Ramadn evening meal) and used her scarf to commit a suicide inside the toilet,” Alanba Arabic language daily said without mentioning why the maid was jailed.
