Sunny Deol, who is a sitting MP from Punjab's Gurdaspur, has helped in the rescue of a 45-year-old woman from Kuwait. As reported, Veena Bedi, 45, who was sold to a Pakistani man after a travel agent lured her to Kuwait on the promise of a housekeeping job of 30,000 per month, returned home on Friday. Veena was not only kept in confinement but was also subjected to assault.

Deol was notified of Veena's situation by the victim’s family during the former's visit to Kartarpur Corridor. She was brought back following the efforts of actor and Gurdaspur MP, District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) and two NGOs, one based in Kuwait and the other having its office in Canada, reported freepressjournal.in. Deol looked into the matter and sounded off officials of the External Affairs Ministry in New Delhi.

Deol's father Dharmendra congratulated the former after the woman was successfully rescued and brought back to India. Sharing the image of a local newspaper that featured the story, Dharmendra wrote a congratulatory message for Deol on Twitter. See his post here:

While addressing the press on the day he officially joined BJP, Deol said, "The way my father (Dharmendra) was attached with Atal Ji, today I have come to join Modi Ji. Whatever I can do for this family (BJP), I will do it...I won't talk, I will show you through my work."
