Crimes In Apartment Complexes: The Dark Side Of Domestic Staff

We, urban dwellers, depend a lot on domestic help for overall maintenance of our household. They often are treated as a part of the family. However, recently there has been some disturbing news related to crimes involving domestic help. Here’s how you can ensure safety.

In early September 2016, the country woke up to some gruesome news from Hyderabad. A 25-year-old maid, Vasundhara Lakshmi, murdered her employer’s neighbor in the most brutal way possible. The culprit had allegedly sneaked into the neighbor’s apartment to steal gold and other valuables but was caught in the act by an elderly woman who resided there. In order to get away with the valuables, Vasundhara Lakshmi proceeds to stab the elder lady repeatedly and then herself, as the commotion had alerted the neighbors. The elderly lady suffered deep injuries that caused severe haemorrhage which led to her death shortly after.
