A woman in Karachi’s Moosa Colony tied up her stepchildren with chains as a punishment for misbehaving, according to the police.
The police were called after the area residents found the children, a four-year-old and a 10-year-old, in chains. They untied the children and provided them with food and water.
According to the neighbours, the children were naked. The woman created a ruckus and fought with them as well. The police took her and her children to the Gulberg police station but did not file a complaint against her.
The police said that the woman told them that she used to work as a domestic help at multiple houses but the children used to steal from the houses because of which she tied them up.
The children admitted to their crime after which they were handed back to their mother. No case has been registered.
