In another case of abuse against domestic servants, a 14-year-old housemaid was allegedly tortured and then threw her near a bus stop in Sargodha after her health took a turn for the worse on Monday. 

Tanzeela, the victim, was sent by her parents to work at Saeed Niazi’s home a year ago, who is a member of the district council, Express News reported.

For months she was barred from having any kind of contact with her family or even meet them.

A few days ago, the family of local council subjected Tanzeela to brutal torture.

    she is lucky she found some one to talk to and her story has come to light . What about those hundreds and thousands who suffer in silence . The government / her parents / the employers all are equally to be blamed. Recommend
