Maid torture case: No shield against arrest for employersApril 3rd, 2012 - 9:42 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 3 (IANS) A Delhi court Tuesday dismissed the anticipatory bail plea of a doctor and his wife who flew to Thailand for a vacation last month after allegedly locking up a 13-year-old maid in their house in west Delhi and with very little food.
“The anticipatory bail plea is dismissed,” said Additional District Judge I.S. Mehta.
Sanjay Verma and his wife Sumita, both doctors, locked their minor help and left for Thailand March 25. They are still abroad.
Their anticipatory bail was filed by their counsel.
The locked maid was rescued March 30 after neighbours heard her screams.
Ashok Kumar Singh, appearing for NGO Shaktivahini, opposed the anticipatory bail application of the maid’s employers.
Police have lodged a first information report against the couple under the Juvenile Justice Act, Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, Child Labour Prohibition and Regulation Act and the Indian Penal Code.
The couple is facing charges of employing a 13-year old and physically and mentally torturing her.
