Hyderabad, Sep 13 A 10-year-old girl who was allegedly working in the house of a senior-level employee of a multi-national firm was rescued by the Cyberabad police here today.

The girl belongs to Yavatmal district of Maharashtra, police said.

She was rescued and produced before the district Child Welfare Committee (CWC), Deputy Commissioner of Police (Madhapur Zone) Vishwa Prasad told PTI tonight.
