Death by fire probe hints at dancers locked up in flat

Death by fire probe hints at dancers locked up in flat


Dubai: Police are investigating whether the door of a flat where a club dancer died when a fire broke out on Monday night was locked.

Aaina Malek, a Pakistani dancer, died in the apartment when the fire broke out as she could not escape. Another girl, Lucky, who was also trapped in the fire, was rescued by neighbours after they broke the door open.

"We are investigating the case," said a senior police official.

He said that locking people up is a criminal offence and legal action can be taken against them.

The death of Aaina could have been averted if the flat had not been locked, said witnesses.

Two Pakistani girls, Aaina and Lucky (their stage names), were trapped and could not escape the flames because they did not have the key, Gulf News has learned.

Aaina's original name was Sana'a Malek while Lucky's real name is Tahira Hajjab. Both are from Karachi.

Aaina was 19 and had been performing in Dubai for the last year and a half.

"While all the girls had been taken to perform in the club, both of them were supposed to join them later because they wanted to rest a bit after their flight for visa change on Monday evening," a close friend of the girls told Gulf News.

"They normally keep the girls, who perform in dance clubs, locked in their flats during the day for 'safety' reasons," said a dancer, who works at another club.

"It is quite common and the management of many Indian and Pakistani night-clubs follows the same practice.

"We are taken to clubs around 8pm and brought back to flats after 3am when the clubs close. We are not allowed to go anywhere. We are given food in the flat and we live like prisoners," she said.

Several girls and employees of other clubs also confirmed this.

When contacted, the management of the club refused to comment.

"We have given information to police. It is not our fault. Come with legal papers if you want information from us," one of the top managers told Gulf News. The same management runs similar clubs in some other hotels in Bur Dubai and Deira.

The dance club where Aaina performed was closed for the last two nights.

Kiran, a bar dancer at a Deira club, said that there had been many incidents when girls have fallen sick but could not get the much needed medical attention on time.

"Such an incident was expected. We are always scared because we cannot get out of flats during an emergency," she said.

There are more than 150 Asian dance clubs in Dubai where hundreds of girls perform every night. They are mainly brought from India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh.

They normally come on a three-month visit visa and their visas are renewed if their performance is appreciated by customers, otherwise they are sent back.

"They are paid hefty salaries and a good performer earns up to Dh8,000 to Dh15,000 per month apart from gifts from customers," said a manager of a night club.
