London man jailed for 'slave' abuse


A man has been jailed for 11 years for raping an Indian woman who was treated like a "slave" at his home in London.

The mother of four, 39, from Hyderabad, was employed in three London households as a nanny and domestic worker. Her passport was taken from her after she reached the UK and she was made to work up to 16 hours every day.

Enkarta Balapovi, 54, was convicted of five counts of rape at Croydon Crown Court in April.
