Man sent to jail after refusing polio drops for his kids

CHITRAL: A man in Jinjiret village sent to jail for refusing to get his children vaccinated during an anti-polio campaign.
The children were vaccinated only after their father Nidaur Rehman was put behind bars.
An official said the arrest was made after all efforts failed to persuade Mr Rehman to allow administration of polio drops to his children.
He said a number of refusal cases had been reported from different parts of the valley but the cases were resolved after officials concerned persuaded the parents and vaccinated the children.–Zahiruddin
