With the advent of technology does come a barrage of problems as well. Especially youngsters and the old like have been falling prey to pornography in cell phones owing to the easy availability of the same. Well, some parents take it to an extreme level upon finding such behaviours in their children.
One such incident has happened in Hyderabad, where a boy’s father had reportedly chopped off his hands for repeatedly watching porn videos using his cell phone.
The father Mohammad Quayyam Quereshi a butcher by profession had cut his son’s right hand. His elder son Mohammad Khalid Qureshi, who works as a cable operator, had recently bought a smartphone. He had got addicted to watching movies and adult videos on his mobile and this annoyed Qayyum, as it was affecting his work and health.
Despite repeated warnings from Qayyum, his son continued to watch porn videos.
In fact, on Sunday morning, when Qayyum caught his son watching porn, the duo got into an altercation. Qayyum tried to snatch the phone from his son, but his son bit him on the hand and left the house.
The father and son got into a similar argument next morning which enraged Qayyum.
“On Monday morning, both father and son quarreled on the same issue again. In a fit of anger, Qayuum picked up the butcher’s knife and chopped off Khalid’s right hand,” HT quoted a police official as saying.
“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,” the official added.
Qayyum then surrendered to the police and was sent for a 14-day pre-trial detention. He has been booked under section 307 of Indian Penal Code (attempt to murder) and has been taken into custody.
