Authorities on Tuesday ordered Nong Nice’s parents, who they claim are Buddha’s revived boy, to cease using their child to earn money.

After a meeting with the kids at the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, Apinya Chompumas, director-general of the Department of Children and Youth, discussed the situation. The parents had gone that to seek assistance in defending the household from charges that they were operating a religion.

The kids had hoped to meet secretary Varawut Silpa-archa, but he was in a government conference and had given Mrs. Apinya the task of speaking with them instead.

Mrs. Apinya said she instructed parents to give priority to their children’s liberties and rights and that they had promised to take great care of their child.

She claimed that the parents requested assistance after government officials visited their home in Surat Thani territory to check the family’s mental wellness. The boy’s parents made claims that he possessed psychic abilities that may connect people’s minds, which has been covered in media attention.

Mrs Apinya said that during Tuesday’s conference, the parents and the eight- year- older boy appeared standard and the session took place in a comfortable atmosphere.

The parents told reporters before the meeting that they would schedule an interview to refute rumors that they were running a religion. The community left the government shortly after the conference, and only Mrs. Apinya was made available to writers.

Mr. Varawut added in a separate statement that the department had relied on the child’s advantages to take action.

Earlier next month, a group of high- report critics filed a complaint against Nong Nice and others who managed the teen’s “mind link” business and website. The organization claimed that they were giving false information to the general public and could be found to get violating the Children’s Welfare Protection Act, Donation Solicitation Act, and Computer Crime Act.

Nong Nice allegedly organized workshops and communities to practice yoga on the subject of communication with devotees, and he claimed to be able to telepathically connect with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
