Domestic violence victim child, Rizwana discharged from LGH

LAHORE (HRNW) The domestic violence victim child, Rizwana, has been discharged from General Hospital Lahore after a challenging four-month recovery.

The child is now in the care of Child Protection Bureau (CPB).

Rizwan, who endured unspeakable trauma, expressed her pleasure in an interaction with media stating,” I am happy today, I have recovered, and I was well taken care of in the hospital.”

Punjab caretaker CM Mohsin Naqvi congratulated Rizwana, her mother and other family members.

Backgrounder: The wife of the civil judge accused of abusing and torturing a 14-year-old deomestic help was arrested on Monday after a court in Islamabad cancelled her bail application.

Somia Asim, wife of Civil Judge Asim Hafeez, had secured interim bail to avoid arrest on the allegations of torturing minor girl Rizwana employed as domestic help at their house.

The harrowing case of brutal treatment of the child came to light earlier this month when Rizwana’s parents shifted her to a Lahore hospital with serious injuries. They alleged the judge’s wife had inflicted severe torture on their daughter.
