AN EIGHT-year-old boy was chained to a lamppost by his impoverished father and auctioned off to the highest bidder.Yong Tsui tried to entice passers-by into making an offer with assurances that his son, Fai, was a hard worker,
However, the auction came to a violent end after onlookers heard bidders asking how little they would have to feed the boy.
Several people attacked Mr Yong, with one putting him in a headlock until the police arrived.
Mr Yong told officers in Wuhan, central China, that his wife had died three years ago and that he could no longer afford to take care of the boy.
Pictures of the toddler, Cheng Jingdan, were published around the world and led to nursery giving him a free place.
Child abduction and child slavery is rife in China.
Last week police in Wuhan freed two naked girls who had been locked in a basement for almost a year.
They were rescued after a repairman found a note they had managed to smuggle out in a broken television.
