more-inA 15-year-old domestic help from Jharkhand was rescued by the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) and the police on Friday from a house in Kalyan Vihar’s Model Town after the neighbours alerted the authorities about the minor being “tortured”. Both the authorities and the neighbours said the girl was in shock when she was rescued and unable to speak coherently. Sarita, a domestic help who works in the neighbourhood, said, “We would often see the girl washing clothes in the balcony. On Friday, she took advantage of the fact that her employer was asleep and gestured to us.”‘Treated helps badly’Other domestic helps alleged that the family was known for ill-treating their house helps. Despite having a six-year-old daughter, she treated the helps very badly,” said Kamala Devi, another domestic help.
