A 13-year-old girl who had been held captive in domestic servitude by a 23-year-old woman in India jumped from the 11th floor of the apartment building in Faridabad. The child was caught in a bird net on the 10th floor and was rescued by residents.

The horrific story was reported by News 18 in India. The girl was from Bihar and reportedly had burns and injuries all over her body. Residents said they often heard cries from her flat. News 18 reported that she had been enslaved and tortured for two years by her captor.

“The victim has burn marks all over her back, she has bruises on her head and her hands have deep marks that appear old. The girl is extremely scared and is in a traumatic condition. Doctors say she has been starved for long,” said Rishi Kant, spokesperson of Shakti Vahini.

Police arrested the 23-year-old women, a student at a private university, for allegedly keeping a minor in captivity. Residents said she never allowed the young girl to leave the house and it looked like she had been starved for quite some time.

After learning about the incident, the Chairperson of the local Child Welfare Committee, is reported to have called for provisions of the law on bonded labor, child labor and juvenile justice to be invoked.

Chip in and help end modern slavery once and for all.
