The Uttar Pradesh police on Tuesday rescued a man who was forced to work as a domestic help at a farmer's house in Muzaffarnagar without getting any salary for a year.

S Silajuddin Asif, a native of West Bengal, was freed from farmer Ompal's house in Dabal village of Ratenpuri area and sent back home after police ensured his dues were cleared by the owner on Monday.
