Gurugram: A case of exploitation of domestic help was reported from Gurugram's Sector-23 on Monday, with a woman claiming she was thrashed by the daughter-in-law of the owner of a paying guest (PG) accommodation where she was working.

The victim claimed she was beaten up for refusing to provide certain services that she was not being paid for.
The victim's ordeal, however, did not end there. After beating beaten up, Sunita was locked up inside the kitchen at the PG accommodation.
Fortunately, she was able to contact police through the helpline number, which eventually led to her rescue.
The entire incident was captured in CCTV cameras.
