Woman mercilessly attacks juvenile maid over ‘excess tea’ in viral video

A raft of violent cases against minors have been reported in the media in the recent past and social media has become a powerful tool in highlighting these cases.

Last year, footage of a woman attacking a juvenile maid over “excess tea” caused social media uproar.

The woman was seen striking the child for “making tea for a family” in the viral video.

The maid was then subjected to a volley of (verbal) abuse and has her hair yanked.

 

The video had stoked widespread social media uproar. Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari solicited public assistance on micro-blogging site Twitter to identify the woman.
