Actor-turned politician Sunny Deol has recently rescued a 45-year-old woman named Veena Bedi, who was sold as a slave in Kuwait.
Veena Bedi, was reportedly sold to a Pakistani man by a travel agent who had conned her into believing that he would help her land a housekeeping job for a salary of Rs 30,000 per month.

Sunny, Bharatiya Janata Party’s MP from Gurdaspur in Punjab, personally intervened after coming to know of the incident. He promptly contacted the ministry of external affairs and, following a swift operation, Bedi was brought back home on Friday.
She was brought back following the efforts of actor and Gurdaspur MP Sunny Deol, District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) and two NGOs, one based in Kuwait and the other having its office in Canada.
Sunny’s father Dharmendra wrote a congratulatory message for Deol on Twitter. See his post here:
