Earlier, Urvashi, a small- time TV actress, was arrested and later released here on Saturday for cruelly abusing a 10-year-old girl child who was employed as her domestic help.

The actress, who was booked under the Juvenile Justice Act and the Child Labour Act, is currently out on bail.

She also made her breakthrough in films with ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na’ opposite Shah Rukh Khan in 1994. She simultaneously pursued a music career in the mid to late 1990s, releasing the pop albums Dole Dole, Dum Tara, Aha, and Zindagi.
