A group of boys in school uniform were spotted fixing a broken road outside a government school in Haryana's Mahendragarh. The students allege that they are beaten up if they decline the work.
"We are beaten up if we refuse to do these tasks," one of the students told news agency ANI.
At a time when the students should be studying or taking coaching, they were asked to fix roads outside their school. The matter has been escalated to the higher authorities who have promised proper action.
"I have received information about it. Proper action will be taken if the allegations are found to be true," Education Officer Rajbala said.
