The couple was arrested for the act.
The employers tried to prove that the victim had epileptic seizures
The minor, an orphan from Darjeeling in West Bengal, was brought to the Nimhans in an unconscious state on Thursday night. Her employer, who brought her to the hospital, said she had epilepsy and had seizures. On Friday, he took her to another hospital in Bomanahalli but disappeared after that. The police were alerted after this and the girl was shifted to the current hospital.
Neighbours told the police that the child was badly beaten up and was also not fed properly.
