In a rare punishment, Bihar's juvenile court has asked four boys to serve patients undergoing treatment at government hospitals, an official said on Friday.
The Juvenile Justice Board in Aurangabad district, about 150 km from in Patna, sentenced the boys to serve patients at two government hospitals in the sub-division towns of Daudnagar and Aurangabad.
The boys, accused of burglary and assault, were punished by the Juvenile Justice Board on Wednesday, the district official said.
A court official said the boys would serve the patients for two weeks within 15 days of the pronouncement of judgement.
The boys are residents of two villages in Daudnagar and committed the crime eight years ago.
