According to police, the victim, Rajni, hails from Siliguri in West Bengal and worked as a domestic help in Delhi. She is undergoing treatment and her family in Siliguri has been informed. The woman was being paid Rs 7,000 per month by the accused couple.

“They (couple) dropped her (Rajni) at my office and left. Later, I found her lying in her own urine and saw that she couldn’t move. She wasn’t unwell; they had beaten her up, “the owner of the agency said.”

I took her to the hospital, where she told me that the couple would assault her regularly. On Sunday, the couple dragged her out of her room and chopped off her hair. She had injuries all over her body, he added.

The medical examination report from Safdarjung Hospital stated that the woman suffered “physical assault”, “head trauma” and was “vomiting”. She also had injuries to her eyes, face, limbs, and abdomen, along with other body parts, police said.

Police said the woman started working for the couple in September last year.

“The couple has been in touch with the agency for a long time.” “Before Rajni, they had hired another woman but fired her, saying she was stealing and had spiked their food with rat poison,” said another officer.
