KARACHI: A minor servant was rushed to hospital with serious multiple injuries after he was allegedly thrown off an apartment building most probably by his own employer. Harish, 10, was serving as a domestic at Dr Manhail’s flat located in Clifton Block-5 near Boat Basin, one of cities swish neighbourhoods.

The doctors at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre’s (JPMC) emergency department say the child labourer is seriously injured. According to police the traumatized Harish was not able to communicate as yet. “We are waiting for him to recover enough to record his statement. Only then we will be in a position to start investigation”, said a police official.

On the other hand Harish’s family has accused Dr Manhail of driving Harish as a slave on top of subjecting him to regular torture over petty issues. The police have taken Harish’s employer into custody for interrogation. Further details are yet to be furnished.
