Police on Monday booked a Myanmar refugee couple living here for allegedly putting chains on the feet of their 11-year-old son to prevent him from running away from a madrasa in Bhatindi, on the outskirts of Jammu city.
According to the police, the boy’s parents and the head moulvi at the madrasa, identified as Abdul Gafoor, have stated that the boy had run away from the madrasa earlier, too. His mother brought him back on Saturday and put chains on his feet.
The police acted on Monday after a local resident took a photograph of the boy and circulated it on WhatsApp. The boy was taken to the local police post, where the chain was opened and he was handed over to his parents.
