Teenagers do hesitate to go to school, it is obvious too. But in a disturbing incident reported from Haridwar in Uttarakhnad, siblings locked themselves up for four years in a room after being scolded by her parents for failing to score good marks in Class 10 exams.

The girl is now 18. She had confined herself to her room in Haridwar. Not only the girl, even her brother, 15, too had dropped out of school in 2016 and locked himself up in another room, The Times of India reported on Thursday.

Mamta Vohra, SP City, told ANI, " Children said they wanted to just have leisure time, locked themselves to avoid studying.''

Children and parents both will be counselled. It will take time for them to develop a mindset for studies, said Vohra.

The incident came to light on Tuesday after a resident of Panchvati Colony filed a complaint with the police stating the neighbours had not seen the children come out of the house for a long time.

The police searched the premises and found the two rooms locked from inside. They had to convince the siblings to open the door of their rooms.
