The team of officials was on an inspection of the lorry garages and hotels to check for cases of child labour. When they reached Nasib Dhaba, the officials found the boy, Ibrahim Nabi Sab, working with his legs in chains.

Owner arrested

The dhaba owner was later arrested by the police. It is said that the boy’s father, Nabi Sab, had taken a loan of Rs 3,000 from the owner of the dhaba. The boy was being made to work there as the money had not been repaid.

Since he had run away a couple of times, his brother had traced him, chained his legs and left him back in the dhaba. Though the dhaba owner said he was working for the past four to five days, sources said Ibrahim was working in the dhaba for the past few months with his legs in chains. District labour officer Dharanendra, tahsildar Jagannathareddy and Sub Inspector Nandish Kumbar were present during the inspection.
