A Hindu girl is being held in illegal detention in Pakistan and her life could be in danger, parliament has been informed.

Gyan Singh, a member of the Pakistan National Assembly (NA), has submitted a call attention notice against "the threat to the life of the 14-year old girl and the subsequent reluctance of the police to register a case against the accused," Daily Times reported on Saturday.

The report did not say where the victim, identified as Kaiko Mai, was being held.

"Singh, who is a representative of the minority community and executive member of the Parliamentarians Commission for Human Rights, wants to bring the story to the floor of the NA.

"Kaiko Mai was a house maid at the residence of Haji Ramzan. She was sexually assaulted by Nadeem, a frequent guest of Haji Ramzan. Haji Ramzan has taken Kaiko Mai hostage and is threatening to end the girl's life," the newspaper said.

The victim's plight was brought to Gyan Singh's notice by her uncle, identified only as Kalval jee.
