Desperate move: Holding on to each other for comfort are the three maids who have just run away from their allegedly abusive employer and her son in Bukit Katil, Malacca.

PETALING JAYA: It was quite a sorry sight. Three women huddled together, shivering in fear.

The trio alleged that they had just run away from their employer because they could no longer endure the abuses and daily beatings from the mother and her son.

News reports said that the Indonesian maids, who worked in Bukit Katil, Malacca, ran away last Friday.

Apparently, the women, aged 21, 22 and 29, sought help from the public because they could no longer stand the abuse.

On Sunday, Bernama quoted Melaka Tengah District Police chief ACP Shaikh Abdul Adzis Shaikh Abdullah as saying that two Malaysians had been remanded over the case.

The woman, in her 50s, and her son would be investigated under the Anti-Trafficking in Persons and Anti-Smuggling of Migrants Act, he said.
