Hyderabad, India: A man allegedly chopped off his teenage son’s hand for being addicted to pornographic videos.
Mohammad Qayyum Qureshi, 45, a butcher by profession of Jalpalli colony in Pahadishareef area, surrendered to the police stating that he had chopped off the right hand (between wrist and elbow) of his son, Mohammad Khalid Qureshi,18, who worked as an assistant at a local cable television operator, reported Hindustan Times.
“The father has been booked under section 307 of Indian Penal Code (attempt to murder) and taken into custody,” Pahadishareef police inspector P Lakshmikanth Reddy said.
“The son has been rushed to a private hospital nearby.”
Qayyum has four children, including two sons.
On Sunday, Qayyum caught his son red-handed watching a pornographic film and tried to snatch the phone from his son, but he resisted and even bit his father’s hand. The boy immediately left home and promised never to return.
However, the boy returned home, late at night, when everybody was asleep.
“On Monday morning, both father and son quarrelled on the same issue again. In a fit of anger, Qayuum picked up the butcher’s knife and chopped off Khalid’s right hand. Hearing the son’s screams, the other family members came and immediately took him to a nearby hospital, where the doctors said the hand was 90% severed and the chances of restoring it are bleak,” police said.
