“We rescued the 14- -year-old domestic maid from Model Town. Can’t describe her condition. She was burnt, beaten, attacked with scissor by her lady employer who is a doctor,” chief of the Commission Swati Maliwal said.
Ms Maliwal claimed that the police has arrested the lady doctor, invoking sections pertaining to “causing hurt” and under Bonded Labour Act, and demanded that she should be given maximum punishment.
She also wondered how could a doctor torture a 14-yr-old in such a brutal manner. “The little girl was confined to house, not given sweater and food,” Ms Maliwal stated.
The child has been put under the care and protection of the child welfare committee and DCW counselors. The commission is now trying to trace the family of the girl in Jharkhand, reports TOI
