Who has helped to send back about 40 people smuggled to Pakistan back to their country. Talking to Mid Day, he told that Hamida Bano had come to his house last week and told him about his smuggling.

She already had 4 sons and her husband’s eldest son is still taking care of them. But she wanted to meet her family and she used to miss them every day.

How was human trafficking done?

According to the report, Hamida lived with her parents in Qureshi Nagar. Her first marriage in India was to Mohammad Hanif Sheikh and they had two sons and two daughters. Due to her husband being an alcoholic, Hamida had to work as a maid to feed her children. In the year 1990, someone told her that if she works in any Gulf country, she will get good money there. After this he worked for 9 years in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Bano told Mid-Day that he met a woman in Vikhroli, Mumbai in 2002 who promised him a job in Dubai. At that time, he accepted this proposal of the woman in order to marry his son and buy a nice house. The woman took away his passport and first sent him to Dubai. Soon after arriving in Dubai, Hamida was put on a flight to Pakistan and deported directly to a place called Sindh located in Pakistan. And thus he spent so many years in Pakistan.
