RAHIM YAR KHAN: A couple beat and tortured a seven-year-old domestic help here in the city for asking for food, police were told on Tuesday.
The minor girl, fearing further abuse and torture, fled the house and ended up in a police station, where she explained that she could not live without her parents.
She said she wished to return home and had, therefore, asked a rickshaw driver to drop her at a bus stand. However, the rickshaw driver took her to the police station instead.
Police said they have registered a first information report (FIR) in this regard. The girl's parents, residents of Alipur, had left her far from home, in the city, for work, they added.
Police further mentioned that there were visible marks of torture on the minor girl's body.
On the other hand, the couple who employed and tortured the girl have fled.
