An Arab woman has filed a complaint with the Dubai Police alleging that her housemaid has been collecting her and daughter's strands of hair, pieces of clothes to cast a witchcraft spell on the family. 

The maid is also accused of hiding a mobile phone with pictures of the employers and her family.

On being questioned, the maid confessed to stealing Dh6,000 two months ago but denied any involvement in witchcraft. She also confirmed to transferring money to her family back home.
