ISLAMABAD: Minor maid Tayyaba, who was allegedly tortured in the house of a judicial officer of the capital, was presented before a medical board in Islamabad today.
A two-member bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, is hearing the case on a suo-moto notice.
On Friday, Pakistan’s Supreme Court ordered police to find Tayyaba who was allegedly tortured by her employers, and demanded a full investigation into the case which has spotlighted rampant child labour in the country.
The case has shocked many in Pakistan after social media images allegedly showing injuries to the girl’s face and hands went viral.
The widely-publicised images of her injuries caught the attention of the Supreme Court, which issued a motion initiating a legal case.
Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar demanded the child be found and a full investigation held by next Wednesday
