The Oshiwara police helped a Moldovan artist get her dues after she was allegedly cheated by an agent in Mumbai who refused to clear her payment due to which the woman did not have money to buy air tickets to return to her country.

Nadejda, who is in her early twenties, had raised the issue with the Mumbai police on its Twitter handle last week after which she was called to the Oshiwara police station. She had arrived in Mumbai three months ago to work as a dancer in films and other shows in which foreign performers are required.

Her agent had made an agreement with Nadejda promising to pay her Rs 1 lakh per month but she got only Rs 10,000, due to which she got stuck in Mumbai. The agent, meanwhile, allegedly refused to pay the rest of the amount.

“When she approached us, we saw the agreement and ascertained that she was cheated. We decided to register her complaint. But when her agent realised that an FIR was being lodged, he called her and promised to pay her dues. She thanked us for the help. We told her that she can approach us if she needs any help in the matter again,” said Amar Patil, Assistant Police Inspector, Oshiwara police station.
