New Delhi: A 17-year-old maid was Wednesday found dead inside her employer's house in the capital, police said.
Shivani's half-charred body was discovered by her father at her employer Atul Verma's residence in Rohini area in west Delhi.
Verma informed Shivani's father that his daughter went into a room and locked it from inside. When her father reached Verma's house, he found Shivani's body but Verma was not there.
The family of Shivani - who was employed at Verma's house for the past one year - alleged murder, while police have not ruled out the possibility of suicide.
Her relatives and neighbours later demonstrated outside the house of Verma, who is an engineer in a private firm, and demand action against him.
