A video of an 11-year-old domestic worker being subjected to brutal torture in Rawalpindi was widely shared on social media on Saturday.

The video revealed that the owners of the house would beat Kenza Bashir with a waist belt and rope. They would neither provide her food nor allow the minor to sleep.

The child was taken back to her native town of Samundari by her father. The CCPO Rawalpindi has taken notice of the incident and suspended an assistant sub-inspector (ASI) over flawed investigation.

Human Rights Minister Dr Shireen Mazari took to Twitter to share the details of the case. “We will be following it to ensure FIR registration and further action. Child is Kenza Bashir. Her father initially denied violence happened. Now an ASI has been suspended for wrong investigation,” Mazari said in her tweet.

“A police team has been sent to Samundri to bring back the child and her parents. After medical examination an FIR will be registered. Army has also been informed as the suspect is an Army doctor. We are keeping a close eye to ensure justice for the little girl,” the minister stated further.
