Tearful pleas of a 14-year-old Pakistani boy for forgiveness fell on deaf ears after a court handed him a prison sentence for stealing a kite.

"Please give me pardon, I will never touch a kite, my annual paper is on tomorrow," Arsalan pleaded.

The class eight student was handcuffed and produced before a judicial magistrate in Gujranwala city of Punjab province, Geo TV reported Sunday.

Arsalan said he was caught by police while he was going to the roof of his house after stealing the kite.
