New Delhi: A 48-year-old house help complained that she was assaulted and hair chopped off by the couple who employed her in West Delhi's Rajouri Garden, police said.
Rajni, hailing from Siliguri in West Bengal, recounted the worst violence she suffered at the hands of the employers on Sunday.
She is getting treatment and her family was informed of the incident, police said.
Rajni was reportedly paid Rs 7,000 monthly by the accused couple, Abhineet and his wife.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Ghanshyam Bansal said police received a medico-legal case (MLC) of a lady on May 17 from Safdarjung Hospital.
The MLC suggested a patient was admitted to the casualty with an alleged history of physical assault by her employers, Bansal added.
The police recorded Rajni's statement and a case under sections of voluntarily causing hurt, wrongful confinement, and assault was registered, the DCP said.
Efforts are being made to nab the accused couple, police said.
Her placement agency reportedly was alerted on phone by the accused on Sunday about Rajni falling sick and asking them to taker her home.
The owner of the agency said the couple dropped Rajni at his office and left and he found her lying in her own urine and she could not move. They had beaten her up, he added.
He took her to the hospital where Rajni told him that the couple used to assault her regularly. On Sunday they dragged her out of her room and chopped of her hair, he said, adding she had injuries all over her body.
The medical examination report from Safdarjung Hospital stated that the woman suffered "physical assault", "head trauma" and was "vomiting".

Police said the woman started working for the couple in September last year.
