Faisalabad torture case: Minor girl shifted to Punjab child protection unit

FAISALABAD: A Faisalabad minor who was tortured by her employers has been shifted to the Child Protection and Welfare Bureau Punjab, confirmed the bureau’s spokesperson Sarah Ahmad on Friday.

She had earlier been returned to her parents, a police spokesperson had said hours after a case was registered in the matter.

Earlier this week, a judicial magistrate had rejected the bail plea of a woman suspected of beating up the minor, sending her on a 14-day judicial remand to prison.

The woman and another man were arrested after a video of them brutally beating a minor went viral on social media. The main suspect in the case, however, was released on bail after submitting bail bonds worth Rs100,000.
