Forced to drink urine, says rescued maid

The girl was naked and badly wounded when a team of police and social workers found her in a Vasanth Kunj apartment where Dhir lived with her mother.

NEW DELHI: A 15-year-old hired help who was tortured by her employer, today spilled out chilling details of the inhuman treatment that was meted out to her by the 50-year-old Delhi woman who employed her.



The young girl alleged that her employer, Vandana Dhir, who works for an MNC, beat her with hot pans, dog chain and knives, NDTV reported.

The girl also alleged Dhir made her drink her urine and forced her to eat and sleep in the toilet.

The girl was naked and badly wounded when a team of police and social workers found her in a Vasanth Kunj apartment where Dhir lived with her mother.

The brave girl told NDTV that she wanted her employer to be arrested but not to be beaten by the police.

Dhir was booked under Sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 326 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 342 (wrongful confinement) of the Indian Penal Code, and Section 16 of the Bonded Labour Act.

Dheer who works in Uttar Pradesh's Noida-based private company at a senior level, was produced in court that sent her to one-day police custody.

Rishikant of Shakti Vahini told IANS they received inputs around 12.30 p.m. Monday of an employer torturing a maid servant for the past few months.

"We shared the inputs with Delhi Commission for Women and approached Vasant Kunj North police station," said Rishikant.

According to him, when he along with police reached Dheer's ground floor house at Sector-A, Vasant Kunj around 4 pm., a woman in her late 80s answered after several knocks.

"The woman, later identified as Sheela, however, did not allow us to enter. We waited and gained entry around 8 p.m. when Vandana returned. We then rescued the girl," said Rishikant.

He said the girl was not able to speak properly because of injury marks all over the body. He added the girl from Jharkhand was hired from a placement agency in June this year.
