A day after disturbing images and videos of an 11-year-old child maid, Kinza shook the nation’s collective conscience, her employers — government officer Ammara Riaz and her doctor husband Dr Mohsin – were booked for allegedly torturing the child on multiple occasions.

Addressing a press conference in Rawalpindi, the city police chief, Abbas Ahsan said that a case was also registered at the Child Protection Bureau against the couple, Express News reported.

The city police officer (CPO) said that they only came to know about the case after Kinza’s photos and videos went viral, creating a social media outcry on Saturday. He said the ASI concerned has already been suspended and a befitting action will be taken against him.

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