Couple Who Tortured, Abused 17-Year-Old Help In Gurugram, Lose Their Jobs
The Gurugram pair fired from their jobs after being accused of torturing and sexually assaulting a young domestic helper, and authorities launched a hunt for the girl’s employer on Thursday.
Their dismissal was reported on Twitter by the insurance company where her husband worked and the public relations firm where the woman worked. An employee of the hospital said that on Thursday, a representative of the Jharkhand Bhawan in Delhi also went to the civil hospital to meet the girl.
According to the complaint lodged by Pinky Malik, the manager of the Sakhi centre that helped the police rescue the girl, the pair forced the girl from Ranchi, Jharkhand, to work and beat her cruelly every day. The girl was employed through a recruiting agency.
According to the police, after detaining Manish Khattar (36), and his wife Kamaljeet Kaur (34), inhabitants of this city’s New Colony, on Wednesday, they discovered several bruises on her hands, feet, and lips.
The girl is 17 years old, not 14, as stated by a police officer previously, according to the FIR.
Her mouth was totally swollen and damage marks were visible, according to Malik, who said that the pair would not let her sleep during the night or give her food.
On Kaur’s job termination, the public relations agency tweeted: “We are shocked to learn about the human rights and child abuse allegations against Kamaljeet Kaur.” “As an organisation, we respect the Indian legal system and are strictly against any form of human rights abuse. The company has terminated her services with immediate effect,” it said.
Manish Khattar’s employer, an insurance business, stated on Twitter that it is committed to preserving high standards of moral and ethical behaviour at all times. The corporation declared, “We have terminated the individual’s job with immediate effect.”
The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) and the office of the chief minister of Jharkhand have been urged to facilitate the girl’s rehabilitation.
