“I was given very little food and sometimes no food at all. I was kept locked inside the house when the family went out. When they had guests, I would be locked up inside a room and asked not to make any noise,” she said.
Doctors found at least nine injuries on the girl. She had injuries on her right scapula, multiple abrasions on her back, bruises on her left hand, right elbow and thighs, said Suchi Kaushik, the doctor who examined the girl.
Her right elbow and left foot were severely swollen and there were bruises over both her eyes, stated the medical report. Doctors also found a knife injury on her back, which was reportedly a few days old.
