New Delhi, July 22 (IANS) A Kenyan woman was arrested here for allegedly confining a 26-year-old woman of her own country in a house with the help of her associate and forcing her into “illegal activities”, police said on Friday.

Alice Njoki, a resident of Nyali in Kenya, was arrested on Thursday from a rented house in Rajpur Khurd Extension in southern Delhi where she confined Gladys Wambui Mwangi, Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Nupur Prasad said.

Mwangi, a resident of Kiambu in Kenya, was rescued from the same house after a Delhi Police team conducted a raid on a tip-off followed by a complaint made on July 18 by Political Counsellor of Kenyan Embassy Frederick Ndegwa.

Prasad said Mwangi was brought to India on the promise that she would get a job.

The police was on the lookout for Njoki’s associate Classidy Jeremiah, a Nigerian, who is missing and on the run, Prasad said.
