ELURU: A minor girl was locked up in a room and beaten up by her owner’s son in the city on Friday. The incident came to light on Saturday, when the victim lodged a complaint with Eluru One Town Police demanding the arrest of her owner’s son.

According to police, Sk Afsara (13), a resident of Madepalli village in Eluru mandal had been working for the last four years at Sri Rama Cool Drinks Shop located at Main Bazar in Eluru One Town. The shop owner is also a wholesale merchant of paper plates and plastic glasses. On Friday, owner’s third son K Kranthi noticed that some plates and glasses were missing and threw the blame on Afsara. On the same day evening, Kranthi locked up Afsara in a room and beat her with a broomstick.

Noticing the wounds on Afsara’s body on Saturday morning, her mother Sk Nagoorbi enquired of her what exactly had transpired. Afsara broke down and told her mother the travails she had undergone the previous day. Later, with the help of village elders, Afsara lodged a complaint with Eluru One Town Police.
