August 22, 2009 11:49 IST
TV actress Urvashi Dhanorkar was arrested in Mumbai on Saturday for physically abusing her 10-year-old maid. 

She has been booked under the Juvenile Justice Act and the Child Labour Act. 

The actress was arrested after medical reports confirmed that Urvashi was responsible for physically abusing her domestic help. 

The girl was brought from Amravati to Mumbai in pretext of adoption and education.

She was brutally punched in her eye and was left with black and bruised marks, besides burns on her forearms. 

When she was rescued by her neighbours on Friday night, the girl's eyes was closed due to severe injuries.  Urvashi will be produced before a court later on Saturday.
