February 8th, 2021; By Asra Haque; LAHORE; The family of 12-year-old Misbah, who was tortured to death by her employer in the latter’s residence in Lahore’s Iqbal Town some weeks back, have expressed their satisfaction with the investigation and police cooperation in attaining justice for the slain girl. Misbah’s case is one among a rare few where the aggrieved kin of minors brutalized by their employers pursue legal recourse rather than accept a settlement or compensation. According to the FIR, Misbah’s father Nasrullah, a labourer and resident of Sheikhupura, had sent his daughter to work in Ms. Saira Bano’s home in Nargis Block, Iqbal Town some two months back. During the period, he and his family tried contacting the girl however her employer would often cut the call with an excuse.
