Couple arrested in Gujranwala for ‘torturing’ minor maid
A man and his wife were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly torturing a nine-year-old maid at their residence in Gujranwala.
The accused, Sheikh Imtiaz and his wife Nabeela Sheikh, allegedly subjected the minor maid to torture for two years while she worked at their residence.
On August 8, authorities were alerted via a phone call from Ratta Road, Gujranwala that a minor girl was found crying outside the house with ‘signs of torture’ on her body. After the call, a team from the Child Protection Bureau was dispatched to the site where it administered medical aid to the girl and shifted her to DHQ Hospital.
An officer from the Child Protection Bureau, speaking to the media, said that the girl claimed she had been beaten and tortured for two years over small mistakes.
A case was registered against the couple after the girl, believed to be a resident of Okara, recorded her statement with the authorities and once the medical report was released.
According to SHO Rana Sarwar, the girl’s parents have not yet made any contact and she remains in the custody of the Child Protection Bureau.
