ISLAMABAD (JAN 8, 2017): 10-year-old maid Tayyaba Bibi has been traced out by the intelligence  agencies today. Police has recovered her from a house located in the suburbs of  the Capital. 

It is pertinent to mention here that Police and the intelligence agencies were on their toes because Chief Justice of the country had taken suo moto notice of  the tragedy and had ordered recovery of the child.

The ten-year-old Tayyaba was allegedly beaten by wife of a lower-court judge. She had purportedly also burnt the child’s hands on the burner because she could not find a missing broom.

The girl has been working as a maid since she was only eight. In Pakistan while super-corrupt politicians, bureaucrats and landlords usurp the public money to build empires in and out of the country, innumerable Tayyabas are forced to work in harsh conditions.
