Samirah, also claimed she was repeatedly poked with a knife and that her ears were twisted until they bled. She said the fear of being abused caused her to involuntarily urinate, for which she was punished further.
Varsha and her perfume-magnate hubby, Mahender, are on trial in Central Islip for allegedly illegally keeping and torturing Samirah and another employee Enung.
The sensational case on Long Island’s Gold Coast, in the ultra-tony enclave of Muttontown, surfaced in May after Samirah escaped the couple’s mansion and was found disoriented and wandering local streets muttering, “Master.”
Samirah, speaking through an interpreter in court yesterday, recounted how she was allegedly forced to walk around the house naked. At one point in court, she got down on her hands and knees to demonstrate how she scrubbed the floors three times a day.
According tothe New York Post, the Sabhnanis’ lawyers have said that the maids were involved in witchcraft and suggested that they self-mutilated themselves as part of a ritual. (ANI)
