Indian maid says she was burnt, beaten and forced to drink urine
NEW DELHI (AFP) - A teenage Indian maid rescued last week with horrific injuries has alleged her employer forced her to drink urine, kept her naked in the bathroom and burnt her with a frying pan, reports said on Saturday.
The young woman was speaking to the media Friday after being rescued by police from a home in an upscale New Delhi neighbourhood following complaints by neighbours.
Police say the teenager had been tortured by her employer, a 50-year-old Indian woman working for a French multinational.
"(My employer) forced me to drink urine, kept me naked in the bathroom and would singe me with a frying pan and hit me with a broom," the maid told The Hindustan Times newspaper.
