A 14-year-old girl from Jharkhand, who was tortured by her employer, was rescued by the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) on Saturday.

The child's medical exaination reportedly revealed several injury marks on her body. The girl was rescued and her employer, a doctor, was arrested. Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Jaihind shared shocking details of the case on Twitter. The DCW received a call on its helpline-181 yesterday about a girl being illegally confined to a house in Model Town. Can't describe her condition! The girl alleged her lady employer beat her up every day.

"Little girl was so courageous".

In October last year, a 13-year-old domestic help had attempted suicide by jumping from a building in an attempt to escape torture by her employer in Haryana's Faridabad district.

She was "physically and mentally tortured, confined to the house and not paid any money", said the DCW.

The police have confirmed the doctor's arrest. "The lady doctor burnt her with hot iron, threw hot water on her, bit and spitted on her face and even attacked her eyes with a scissors", the DCW chief tweeted further.

To add to the girl's trauma, her employer did not give her food for a long time, owing to which the 14-year-old was "reduced to bones", said Maliwal.
