New York: A 12-year-old Sikh boy was kept behind the bars for three days for allegedly joking to a classmate that he has a bomb in his backpack, the boy’s cousin wrote in a Facebook post this week.
“They kept him behind bars for three consecutive days, before finally releasing him on Monday, December 15th,” Haer wrote in the Faecbook post that has been shared by thousands of people.
“Worried & frightened at home, his family was concerned as to why he had not reached home right after school. They started calling every police department in the area, only to find out he was sent to a Juvenile facility,” she added.
According to media reports, police said they indeed went to Nichols Junior High School in Dallas, Texas, after a student told a teacher that Sarai told him he was planning to blow up the school.
