An Indian maid has accused her Singaporean boss of raping her, said media reports on Tuesday.

She alleged that he raped her every day for a week and threatened to strangle her and throw her down from the flat, The Straits Times reported.

Sudarsanan Margasagayam, a 48-year-old former building safety officer, faces five counts of raping the woman.

The maid, a mother of three in her late 30s, told an employment agent who placed her in the job what happened from June 1-7, 2004. A police report was made, and Sudarsanan, married with two children, was arrested.

Jerome Goh, a psychiatrist at the Institute of Mental Health, diagnosed the maid with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression after the alleged attacks.
