They fled their workplaces after becoming victims of torture by their Saudi employers

Thirty-five more Bangladeshi female workers have sent a video message from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with fervent SOS (save our souls) calls to be rescued.

In the video shared by Md Shariful Hasan, program head of Brac Migration, on his Facebook wall on Wednesday, the 35 women wearing veils were seen crying and urging Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to bring them back home, reports UNB.

One of the female workers described their ordeals, saying they fled their workplaces after becoming victims of torture and brutality by their Saudi employers. 

She said they went to police and have been staying in police custody for the last several months. 

"There is no one here to look after us. We are begging you, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina. Please help us to return back," she said.

Earlier, similar video messages were sent by Bangladeshi female workers by Hosna Akter and Sumi Akter.

Of them, Sumi has already been rescued and brought home while Hosna is scheduled to return home Wednesday night.
