GUJRANWALA: A nine-year-old house maid was beaten up and burned allegedly by her employer.
The girl’s parents told police that their daughter worked at the house of Noreen Bibi. They said her husband Shaikh Saleem had stopped her from leaving the house without his permission.
On Thursday, they said, the man asked the girl if his wife had left the house in his absence, and she told him that she had. This led to an argument between the couple. They said the woman later burned the girl with an iron rod and cut her hair for telling on her. A neighbourhood shopkeeper noticed the burn injuries on the girl’s arms when she later went for shopping and informed her parents. Police said the employers had denied the allegation. No one had been arrested.
