PATNA: The Delhi police have arrested a cruel doctor who brutally tortured a tribal girl from Jharkhand for months.
The 14-year-old victim who hails from Jalsar village under Khunti district in Jharkhand was attacked with scissor, burnt, beaten and even spat on her face by the lady doctor in a posh Model town area of Delhi.
The doctor was arrested after someone complained to the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) helpline and sought for action.
Reports said the lady doctor not only threw hot water on the girl but pressed her hands with hot iron. DCW chief Swati Jaihind posted horrible tales of girl’s tortures on her Twitter account.
“Received call on DCW Helpline 181 reg a girl being tortured by employer. We rescued the 14 yr old Jharkhandi domestic maid from Model Town. Can’t describe her condition! She was burnt, beaten, attacked with scissor, spat at & bitten by lady employer who is a doctor,” the DCW chief tweeted.
She added, “Little girl was so brave. Her lady employer so vicious. A doctor herself, how could she torture a 14 yr old in such brutal manner. Little girl was confined 2 house, not given sweater, food & hs been reduced 2 bones. Police arrested lady employer! Shud b given max punishment!”
The posts drew bitter comments from people who sought for stern action against the accused doctor.
The victim had come to Delhi in search of livelihood some a year back and was working in doctor’s home as a domestic help for the past about four months.
