It is reported that 41 Sri Lankan women are going through immeasurable suffering in Saudi-Arabia. Despite Sri Lankan Embassy in Saudi-Arabia, the Department of Immigration and Emigration in Sri Lanka have been informed about this issue, no remediable action has been taken yet.

Though ten women have fallen sick already they have not been granted any medical treatment yet say reports.
