He started screaming at the maid and asked her not to spoil his relations with me. He angrily caught her from her neck so I intervened and pulled him away from her and I asked her to go to her room and then the police arrived. I several times saw my husband harassing the maid. One day, I saw him groping her while she was in one of the rooms. I saw him from the window,” the wife testified before the court.
“I rushed out and confronted him, but he laughed and went out. The maid had complained to me earlier that one night he knocked at her room’s window at dawn and I actually saw him there on the same night,” she testified.

As we heard a voice of a woman screaming, he claimed that it is his wife who is shouting at children. I asked him to bring her to talk to him. As he opened the door, the maid rushed out from her room and held my colleague’s hand telling that her sponsor assaulted physically and sexually. I saw redness and traces of fingers around her neck.”
