#JusticeForKinza: Army officer, husband booked for torturing child maid

Rawalpindi (Web Desk): Police have registered a case against an Pak Army officer and her husband for torturing an 11-year-old maid at their home.

Kinza Bashir, was working at the house of Ammara Riaz, an Army major, and her husband Dr Mohsin in Rawalpindi where she was repeatedly beaten and denied basic rights.

In a disturbing video, the child says she was kicked often, and sometimes her woman employer would even stand on her. “If I were sleeping, they would wake me up and hit me.”

The victim even confessed to steal food because she wasn’t fed by the family. “They would hit me for stealing biscuits and nimco. I would steal it because I was hungry,” she said.

According to initial medical report, the child was tortured periodically and carries wound marks all over her body. She also had a wound on her head, which needed three stitches.

Kinza was rescued by the Child Protection Bureau after her father, a native of Faisalabad, took her to Airport police station, but policemen did not register a complaint against the army officer. They even forced the father to take her injured daughter back to their hometown, Sumandari.

Later, in another tweet, Mazari revealed that the child’s father was even ‘forced’ to sign an affidavit saying that Kinza got injured after falling from the stairs.
