Three persons of a family were arrested today from Howrah’s Baksara area for allegedly assaulting a minor girl whom they had hired as a maid five days ago.
They have been identified as Shyamapada Bar, his wife, Rita Bar and their son, Rajsekhar Bar. Sources said, the girl, a resident of Canning was brutally thrashed by the trio, this morning, after she refused to do household work due to ill-health. They mercilessly beat up the girl and gagged to prevent her screams from being heard by the neighbours. The girl, somehow, managed to escape and rushed to a neighbour’s house. Locals informed police who reached the spot and rescued the girl.
