Chinese cadets rush to defend ‘strange’ punishment

A group of Chinese students have been forced to carry out their compulsory military training wrapped in thick bed covers, as punishment for not tidying their rooms. After lying under the blazing sun in a blanket, students at southern China’s Changsha University then did exercises with buckets on their head. While social media users and media outlets slammed the punishment for its absurdity, the victims themselves have rushed to defend it.
