They put Iqbal in a box for trying to escape several times.
Iqbal Masih was a poor boy.His father was Saif Masih and his mother was Inayat Bibi.His nationality is Pakistani and is born in Muridke in Pakistan.
His father Saif Masih traded him for 12 US dollar to the carpet factory owner and his dad said he will get him after he has got the job and stuff.
Iqbal was not the only one who was suffering even others were and they were not getting enough food and they are getting whacked,but Iqbal escaped at the age of 10~11 and then he was giving speeches and he told them "I am Iqbal Masih and me and others are suffering we are not getting enough food and we are getting whacked and there was this chain thing which will hold one of us and then we get hit so can you please help us in any."This was not the exact thing he said but when he said that Iqbal had some policemen with him and arresting the people inside and let the suffering ones to come out.
