The wife poured boiling water on the minor girl on Saturday morning

Police have arrested a couple for allegedly torturing a minor girl who is a househelp at their flat in Dhaka’s Rupnagar neighbourhood.

Police arrested Sajjadul Bashar, an employee at a local hospital, and his wife Shahnaj Begum, on Saturday morning after receiving information about the matter from locals.

The victim is a 10 year old girl from Noakhali. She has been working at the couple’s house for around three years.

She told the police that the couple have been physically abusing her for a long time for trivial matters.

Her primary job responsibility was to take care of the two children of the house but the couple forced her to do other tasks as well.

On Saturday morning, Shahnaj allegedly poured boiling water on the minor girl after she made a mistake in one of her chores.

Hearing screams, neighbours rushed to the spot and contacted the police, said Asaduzzaman, sub-inspector of Rupnagar police station.

Mokammel Haque, inspector (operation) of the police station, said a police team rescued the minor girl from the flat, and took her to Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital for treating her burn injuries.

Police arrested the couple after a complaint was lodged against them.

There are signs of physical abuse on the girl’s body, and she is traumatized from repeated torture, said Asaduzzaman.
