Physical training to juvenile home inmates



Children living in the remand home in Dhanbad are being given physical training for getting them selected in the Indian Army. According to Juvenile Home Nodal Officer Colonel JK Singh, the imamates are being trained with an intention to help them get selected in the army recruitment drives. If they already have the physical training, then they will not need to work too hard for the selection process during the drives he said. The training, however, is not for free and the inmates will have to pay ‘Guru Dakshina’ in return by planting at least five trees, respecting their elders and using helmet while riding a bike.
