Bhubaneswar: A case has been registered against a couple for allegedly torturing their minor domestic help in Capital City, police said on Sunday.

The couple, who are highly qualified and well established, had branded 10-year-old girl with hot iron and beaten up when she makes any mistake at work.

The matter came to light when Ruchika Childline, a City-based NGO, got to know about the incident and lodged FIR against the accused couple at Airfield Police Station here on Saturday.

Sources said the minor girl was working as domestic help at the couple’s residence at Bhimtangi area here since last Durga Puja.

The victim alleged that the employer’s wife meted out physical torture to her.

“I used to get up early in the morning and clean house, collect milk, make tea and then take my madam’s daughter to school. One day Babu (madam’s husband) slapped me but I didn’t say anything and remained silent,” said the victim, who was looking very upset.
