 The 12-year-old child domestic worker complained, “I have been working at the house of district DB inspector Mizanur Rahman for the last six days.” I have been scolded many times during this time. Today I ran away from home. Mizanur Rahman’s wife grabbed me and beat me in Chaumatha area of the city.
At this time his son also slapped her.
 Eyewitness Rafiqul Islam Hawlader said, “The girl was crossing the road in front of Chaumatha Bazar. One woman and a boy grabbed her hand and started beating her. At that time the girl shouted and said that I won’t go back to your house even if I die.
 Another eyewitness, Mumtaz, said, “People can’t hurt people like that. They are animals. If you kill the poor, there will be no justice”.
