Man arrested for tying 8-yr old daughter to a motorcycle

The 40-year-old was arrested after local newspapers in Uttar Pradesh state published photos taken by passers-by. An Indian man in a village in the district of Mathura has been arrested after he was photographed taking his 8-year old daughter to school while she was tied to a motorcycle.

The 40-year-old, who was charged with breach of peace, was arrested after local newspapers in Uttar Pradesh state published photos taken by passers-by.
An Indian man in a village in the district of Mathura has been arrested after he was photographed taking his 8-year old daughter to school while she was tied to a motorcycle.
The man who says says his daughter had an exam and was reluctant to go to school, has now been freed on bail.

The incident, which happened on Friday comes at a time when the prime minister has launched a huge campaign to educate girls in India.

According to BBC, police say he tried to persuade the girl, his youngest child, to go to school, particularly since she had a test to write.

The child was promised sweets and gifts, but when she refused to relent, her angry father tied her to the back of his bike with ropes and took her to school.

The man, who spent a day in the cells, is a father of 2 sons and 3 daughters, and works as a security guard at a private school.

"My daughter will not die if I take her to school. But she will surely die if she does not study" he reportedly said of the incident.

India has a female literacy rate of 64%, compared with 81% for men.
