The city police has arrested a man from Kulashekar for allegedly cheating a woman on the pretext of getting her a nurse’s job in Doha, Qatar and “selling her as a slave” in Saudi Arabia, it said today. James D’Mello (35) was arrested yesterday, the police said, adding that he was instrumental behind sending Jacintha Mendonca (46), a resident of Mudarangady in Udupi, Karnataka, to Saudi Arabia.

D’Mello had reportedly sent Mendonca to Mumbai, from where she was sent to Saudi Arabia by another agent, Shaba Khan, who had allegedly taken Rs 5 lakh from her employer in Saudi Arabia.
