Butcher chops off son's hand angered by his porn addiction

A man allegedly chopped off his teenaged son's hand as he was angry at the youngster for being addicted to his smartphone and watching porn on it for hours.

The accused has been identified as a 45-year-old Mohammed Qayyum Qureshi.

In a shocking case, an electrician allegedly chopped off his son's right hand on Monday. Khaled would watch movies late at night at a stretch, "making" his father outraged up to a point, that he slashed his son's right wrist with a butcher's knife.

In fact, on Sunday morning, when Qayyum caught his son watching porn, the duo got into an altercation.

Two days ago, the father and son had a heated argument about the same issue, and Khaled bit his father's hand in anger and ran away from home.

While other shocked family members and neighbours rushed the young man to hospital, Abdul Qayyum went to the police station and surrendered himself.

An infuriated Qureshi cut off the son's right hand when the latter was asleep Monday night, the officer said.

"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 was quoted as saying in the report.

According to police, Qayyum has four children including two sons and Khalid is the elder of the two sons. They took him to the hospital where the doctors said that 90% of his hand was severed and there's no scope of restoring it.
