DUBAI // A businessman lured a woman to the country by promising her a job as a maid but locked her up and forced her into prostitution, a court heard yesterday.

Indian MF, 31, said she received a call from a man asking her to come to Dubai to work as a maid for Dh800 a month.

But when she arrived on March 5, she was met by SA, a 50-year-old Indian, who took her to a flat in Deira and told her she would have to prostitute herself to make a living.

SA denied the charges and the next hearing was scheduled for November 25.
