Two boys were allegedly kept in chains at a madrasa in Lucknow.
In Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow, the maulana at a madrasa allegedly tied the feet of two boys in chains to prevent them from running away.
The case came to light after a local made a video and sent it to the police, who reached the site and freed the children before detaining the accused.
Meanwhile, the parents of the boys have filed a written application saying they do not want any legal action to be taken against the maulana. According to the police, the parents said that they told the maulana to be strict with the children as they had attempted to run away to escape their studies several times in the past.
The children said they tried to run away as they did not want to study. One of the boys said he even hid in the toilet to avoid studying.
