SISTERS ASSAULTED FOR ACCIDENTALLY HITTING PET DOG
Another such disastrous incident was reported from neigbouring Jharkhand where two minor sisters working as domestic helps were beaten up badly by their landlady after her pet dog was accidentally injured.
The minor sisters aged eight and six were employed as domestic helps in the house of Asha Chaudhary, a resident of Hazaribagh district in Jharkhand.
On Friday, the little sisters were playing in the house when they accidentally hit the pet dog. In a fit of rage, the landlady began mercilessly assaulting the girls with sticks.
