On the direction of the Ministry of Human Rights, the Kohsar police have registered a case against a citizen on the charge of torturing her 11-year-old maid.
The police said the girl was working in a house at F-7/4. About a month ago, her woman employer tortured the girl after she broke a glass. The girl also sustained burn injuries on her body.
Later, she managed to reach her native town of Faisalabad. Her family then approached the Child Protection Centre in Faisalabad and lodged a complaint, said the police.
In response, the centre brought the issue in the knowledge of the Ministry of Human Rights.
In a letter to the capital police, Mohammad Yousaf, an assistant director of the ministry, asked for an investigation.
The police said the girl was currently in her native town and police were collecting details about her as well as her employer.
