After the three brothers refused to go to the Madrasa, their father approached the teachers at the Madrasa in Hosur Sarjapur Road Layout. He asked them to speak to the three boys and convince them to study. As a form of punishment, the maulana (teacher) decided to chain the three brothers, hoping that it might scare them into attending the Madrasa.

The police received information about the chaining and visited the premises in plain clothes. They spoke to the three boys who told them the incident. The case was registered against Wahab and the teacher responsible for chaining them. The children have apparently undergone mental trauma and were crying even as they related the incident to the police. The Child Welfare Committee has been asked to counsel the three children and help them recover.
A similar incident took place in Yamunanagar, Haryana where a boy was chained in a Madarsa for not finishing his homework. The parent, to his shock, found his four-year-old son chained and took a video of it, which he later sent to the police.
