HYDERABAD – An Indian man chopped off his teenage son’s hand for being addicted to pornographic videos.

The shocking incident happened in Pahadi Shareef area of Hyderabad on Monday.

Mohammad Qayyum Qureshi, 45, a butcher by profession, surrendered to the police stating that he had chopped off the right hand of his son, Mohammad Khalid Qureshi (18), who works as an assistant at a local cable television operator, according to Hindustan Times.

“The father has been booked under section 307 of Indian Penal Code and taken into custody,” Pahadishareef police inspector Lakshmikanth 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 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. 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.
