In yet another shocker, an Assistant Professor of B Borooah College in Guwahati has been accused of brutally torturing a 10-year-old girl working as a domestic help for the last two and half years.
The professor has been identified as Dr Sabrina Langthasa of Zoology department at B. Barooah College.
The incident was reported at Piya Exotica apartment, one of the spacious housing societies in the Kahilipara locality of Guwahati city.
The minor victim originally hailed from Umrangso, an industrial town and a town area committee in Dima Hasao district in the state of Assam.
According to initial reports, the child was subjected to ‘unspeakable’ child abuse by Prof. Dr Sabina Langthasa that included beating, putting a hot iron on her, and tying her without eating..
The child was rescued under the supervision of two organisations namely Assam Centre for Rural Development and Child Friendly Guwahati on Friday.
Meanwhile, a case has been lodged in connection to the matter at Bhagaduttapur Police Outpost in Kahilipara.
This is likely to be another big child abuse case that has come to the fore in the city after Sangeeta Datta and Waliul Islam were accused of child abuse earlier this year.
On the other hand, the personal assistant of Sangeeta Datta namely Utpala Bose, one of the key accused in the Guwahati child abuse case had appealed to the Gauhati High Court for a regular bail on Thursday, however, the court had rejected the bail plea and sought details from the lower court on or before November 14, 2023.
