A woman in the Punjab district of Pakistan became so angry when a boy, 13, working for her asked for his wages that she turned around and chopped off his hand.
The boy was working at the woman’s house, according to his mother. And he was supposed to receive regular wages for his work.
But that didn’t happen.
“A woman in Pakistan’s Punjab chopped off a 13-year-old boy’s right hand with a fodder cutting machine for allegedly demanding for his salary.
“According to the boy’s mother, Jannat Bibi, Irfan was employed at Shafqat Bibi’s house in Safdarabad for a salary of Rs. 3,000, as told to the police.
“‘Last week Shafqat Bibi got furious with Irfan when he demanded salary. She cut his right hand with a fodder cutting machine to teach him a lesson that he demands salary but doesn’t complete his job of feeding the cattle,’ she said.
“The incident took place in Sheikhupura village, 50 kilometres from Lahore.
“He was shifted to a local hospital where his condition is stated to be critical, his mother said.”
