13-YO Domestic Help Brutally Thrashed, Tortured; Rescued
Gurugram: In a horrific case of torture and child labour, a 13-year-old help was rescued from her employer’s house in Gurugram late last evening.
The girl, who hails from Jharkhand, was found with wounds all over her body, officials said.
As per reports, the girl was allegedly beaten with hot tongs and sticks by the couple, sources said. Initial investigation suggests the couple would starve and thrash the girl accusing her of “not working properly” and stealing food.
The girl was rescued by the police based on a complaint filed by a Gurugram-based NGO.
Reportedly, the couple has been arrested and a case registered under Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences or POCSO Act among other charges.
