Two maids end life in separate suicides

By Staff

An Indonesian housemaid committed a suicide by hanging herself at her employer’s house in Saudi Arabia. In another area, an Ethiopian maid was found hanged by the ceiling fan at her employers’ house.

The Saudi employer of the Indonesian maid told police that she found the maid hanging by a rope tied around her neck on top of the stairs at her house in the southern province of Asir. Police, quoted by Sabq newspaper, said they were investigating the case but ruled out any criminal act.

In the Western town of Makkah, police said a 27-year-old Ethiopian maid was found hanging by the ceiling fan at her employer’s house.

Family members told police that they tried to wake the maid up but her room door was locked, adding that they had to smash the door. “They said they found the maid hanging by the fan,” Sabq said.
