A Sri Lankan couple is under investigation for using hundreds of school children to carry the train of the bride’s saree during a wedding ceremony.

This two-mile long saree was the longest ever worn by a bride in Sri Lanka. The students who carried the saree were special guests at the wedding.

The National Child Protection Authority (NCPA) said that they are investigating the incident so that such activity doesn’t become a trend.



 

NCPA Chairman, Marini de Livera, stated that deploying students for such ceremonies during school hours is against the law,

What they (the wedding party) did is a violation of child rights. Depriving children of education, risking their security and harming their dignity are criminal offenses.
