The Hush Post: A minor domestic worker beaten bitten and burnt from time to time by her employer, who happens to be a leading dentist in the national capital. This domestic worker has been rescued with injuries allegedly inflicted by her employer, a dentist, who lives in Kalyan Vihar, Model Town in north-west Delhi. The 14-year-old tribal girl from Jharkhand was allegedly bitten, beaten and burnt in the past five months several times. The police have registered an FIR. She said the employer, Nidhi Chaudhary has been arrested.
Now the child has been put under the protection of the child welfare committee and DCW counsellors. The commission is now trying to trace the family of the girl in Jharkhand.
The girl was saved due to a neighbour who often heard screams of the 14-year-old and called up the 181 helpline of DCW. Swati Jaihind, commission chief, shared details of the case on Twitter. “We rescued the 14-year-old Jharkhandi domestic maid from Model Town. Can’t describe her condition! She was burnt, beaten, attacked with scissor, spat at and bitten by lady employer who is a doctor! Most evil!”
She went on to tweet that the “Little girl was so brave. Her lady employer so vicious.”
The girl was tortured physically and mentally, confined to the house and not paid any money, alleged Jaihind. “She had deep cuts and bruises all over her body. She said she was burnt by her employer with an iron and hot water was regularly thrown at her. Several burn marks were visible on her body,” claimed the commission in a press statement. The DCW team also claimed to have seen bite marks all over her face and other signs of maltreatment too.
In the name of food she would be given only two slices of bread once in two days. She was not allowed to wear sweaters or use blankets at night.
