A teenage domestic help, who was allegedly brutally assaulted by her employer, was rescued by the Delhi Commission For Women (DCW) from northwest Delhi's Model Town.
The DCW received a call on its helpline-181 yesterday about a girl being illegally confined to a house in Model Town.
The girl was rescued and her employer, a doctor, was arrested.
She was "physically and mentally tortured, confined to the house and not paid any money", said the DCW.
The girl alleged her lady employer beat her up every day.
The employer poured hot water on her and branded with a hot iron, she alleged.
The doctor had even bitten her, the girl told police.
The girl was not given food for days, according to the DCW.
