SANGHAR: A young domestic worker was found dead at the house of her employer on Tuesday causing her parents to raise a hue and cry and accusing the employer family of having tortured her to death. The victims’ parents told local reporters and neighbours that their 14-year-old daughter, Radha, had been working as a domestic servant at the house of a trader for the last two years. They said some members of the trader’s family visited them in their village to inform them that Radha was very ill and they should see her. The wailing parents said that when they saw their daughter at her employer’s house, she had already expired.

They claimed that marks of torture on Radha’s body were visible, and alleged that she was tortured to death.

They said Radha had also complained of torture by the employer family two months ago when she had visited her home.
