Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari has stated on Wednesday that the woman accused of brutally beating an underage house-maid has been identified by the Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) as an Indian living in Chandigarh.
Informing the news on Twitter, Mazari wrote:
This came after a video started doing rounds on the social media last week showcasing a woman thrashing a girl ruthlessly for making ‘more tea than needed’.
This prompted action, as the minister, requesting people to help her identify the woman tweeted:
“Can anyone help identify who this woman is and where she is based? Need this info to act.”
The video shows the then-unidentified woman hurling abuses at a domestic helper, who apparently a minor, starts crying over the woman’s ruthless behaviour and slapping.
