A 10-year-old girl was brutally tortured for around four years while working as a domestic help at the house of a government bank official in Dhaka.

Agrani Bank Officer Mizanur Rahman and his wife Sharmin Rahman Munni have been arrested in connection with the incident, according to Mymensingh district Police Superintendent Ahmar Uzzaman.

The victim’s father, who suffers from a disability, said his daughter was employed at the bank official’s house in Tejgaon for Tk3,000 a month. However, the employers have only paid two months’ salary in four years.

He also said the employers did not allow him to his daughter on multiple occasions, giving various excuses.

The employers eventually allowed the child to travel to her family in Mymensingh after her mother told them that she was ill, the father added.

When the child reunited with her family, they took her to the police station. Upon seeing the injury marks on her body, police arrested the bank official and his wife.

Police said no part of the child’s body was unscarred, and she had been burned with boiling water as well as hot metal rods. A case has been filed under the Child Abuse Act.
