A child’s addiction to watching pornographic films on his smart phone triggered his father to chop off his right-hand.

After such a horrific incident, the father surrendered to the Pahadishareef police station in Indian city of Hyderabad on March 5.

Mohammad Abdul Qayyum Qureshi kept warning his 19-year-old son, Khalid Qureshi, against excessive use of his cell phone time, especially when it comes to watching porn, according to the police.

Khalid was watching movies on his cell phone on Sunday when his father caught him red-handed. The moment he tried to snatch the phone away from his hand, the son bit his father’s hand and ran away.

After returning home late, the son continued to do his usual business which led to further altercation on Monday.

An angry Abdul Qayyum, a butcher by profession, used his knife to chop off Khalid’s right-hand.

The father surrendered himself to the police while other family members rushed and admitted the young boy to Osmania General Hospital where doctors said the possibility of restoration of his hand was bleak.

Family members said, Khalid, one of the four children of Abdul Qayyum, was lazy and spent most of his time on the phone. After much persuasion he had recently joined the private job but was irregular at work.

The police have booked an attempt to murder case against the father and remanded him in judicial custody.
