A 20-year-old Indian student was recently rescued in Missouri, United States (US), after months of captivity, physical and mental abuse, and forced labor. The student, whose identity remains undisclosed, was confined in three different homes owned by his cousin, Venkatesh R Sattaru (35), and two other men, Sravan Varma Penumetcha (23), and Nikhil Verma Penmatsa (27). He was rescued after a concerned citizen informed the police. Prosecutor Joe McCulloch called the incident "absolutely inhumane and unconscionable."
