A clerk who was not paid his dues for three months left his children at the gate of a government office at 5 Shyamnath Marg on Friday, saying that the administration should provide for them as he was unable to do so, Delhi police said.
According to the police, the man, Naresh, a clerk at the Jyotiba Phule Housing Society, left his children at the gate of the administrator's house saying that since he had not been paid for three months, the administration should take care of his children, aged one and a half years.
