The minor was barbarically beaten and physically abused by her employers while working as a domestic help at a Dhaka home

A 10-year-old girl is fighting for her life at Narail Sadar Hospital after reportedly being physically abused in an inhuman manner during her employment earlier as a domestic help in Dhaka.

The bed-ridden girl, Roksana, is being provided food, oxygen and other amenities through artificial means as her body is not being able to sustain treatment naturally, said the doctors.

Her relatives alleged that her eight-month stint as a domestic help in Dhaka was filled by medieval abuses by her employers.

Roksana was recruited through Saleha Begum, an acquaintance of her family, who took her to work at the house of Asadullah and his wife Sonia on Tipu Sultan Road in the capital’s Wari.

The child was reportedly subjected to various types of abuse, including sexual abuse, without any provocation or reason.

When her physical condition deteriorated on August 17, she was admitted to Dhaka's United Hospital, after which she was handed over to her family. They took her to Narail Sadar Hospital two days later.

Sadar Hospital’s Resident Medical Officer Dr Mashiur Rahman Babu said Roksana's body bore all the evidence of severe physical abuse and she was still not out of danger.

Meanwhile, the child’s father Rasel Sheikh filed a case on August 22, Wednesday, with Lohagara police station, accusing Asadullah, Sonia and her brother Ibrahim for abusing Roksana.

The family only wants Roksana to recover and punishment of those responsible for the barbaric torture on the child.

Lohagara police OC Prabir Biswas said an investigation slip has already been dispatched to Dhaka's Wari police station and Munshiganj’s Louhajang and Sirajdikhan police stations to trace the accused, who are reportedly on the run at present.

Narail’s Superintendent of Police Jasim Uddin (PPM) said the accused would not be spared and action would be taken against them accordingly for the barbaric acts on the child.

Saleha and Sonia both were unavailable for comment on the matter.
