In the latest development regarding the viral video that showed two boys being chained inside a madrasa, it has been revealed that their parents had asked the teacher to do so. ACP Gosainganj Swati Chaudhary told reporters that the boys, both aged 12, had earlier run away from the madrasa and were picking up wrong habits. Hence, their parents had asked the teacher to keep them in chains.

"The parents of the children have given in writing to us that they don't want any action against the madrasa teacher. They added that they wanted their children to invest their time in studies," ACP Gosainganj said.

Hours after the video went viral, the police rushed to the madrasa. However, they discovered that the parents of the two had themselves asked the madrasa teacher to chain them as they use to run away from the madrassa and loiter around.

The mother of one of the boys told reporters, "No person in our family has ever gone to school. We wanted our son to go to school and study, but he had other plans and indulged in the wrong habits. Hence, we instructed the teacher to take strict action to keep him in school."

Another senior police officer said that they were seeking legal opinion on possible action against the parents for the act.
