A local journalist is said to have found the girl in the streets and brought her to the police station where she told officers about the horrific treatment she suffered under the Hossain family.
Police say they found injuries and scars on her body that are consistent with torture.
Shahadat Hossain filed a report with the Mirpur police claiming that his maid had gone missing. Police did not release the details of the report.
