  1. Don’t shed crocodile tears, If you are so sanded about the incident than pay the compensation for the diseased family. If it was suicide case, she must have been abused badly; no one would take his /her life without being miserable due to mistreatment and in the face of humiliation.

    The fishermen normally treat foreigners as if they are some filth. The fishermen normally forget who they are and have a notion that they are some superior creed. These fish smelling people always joke about Indian, sri Lankans and Bangladeshis as bad smelling and ugly people. I wonder how these guys feel some exceptional people after all they are the same people as Bangladeshis. This is where I had come to conclusion that these fishermen are mentally drained people.

  2. So even the government keeps slaves for their menial jobs - so much for keeping jobs for local. Were Maldivian women not available to work at Minister's house? Or does the elite here has started equating themselves with Arab sheikhs?

  3. @Fish Head, do not take things so personally, a Bondhu is always a Bondhu. A fisherman is always a fisherman, A fisherman is never a Bondhu.

  4. agreed that the maid committed suicide and that the reason being: financial, sexual abuse, physical abuse and mental torture and disallowed from going for holidays to her country Bangaladesh.

  7. the guy looks a bit sadist to me... was it a rape case or what? where is the police to take DNA and do postmortem now...

  8. @ Virendra
    These primitive islanders have always equated themselves with arab sheikhs.........they actually believe that just because they blindly follow the arab's religion, their forefathers also rode camels in the desert.
    This woman's death is very sad. May she rest in peace.
