HYDERABAD: Infuriated over the request of a 9-year-old boy to live with his biological father, the boy’s mother allegedly branded his genitals with a hot iron rod. The incident came to light on Thursday as the boy and his father lodged a complaint with the police against the woman.
The parents of the boy, who were married in 2005 were separated in 2006 after being blessed with two boys.
Five months ago, the woman married again and was living with him along her two sons.
However, the younger boy expressed his desire to live with his biological father, for which his mother was not agreeing. Annoyed by the child’s reported adamant behaviour, the mother used to beat him up and also reportedly made him drink urine. On Tuesday, she branded the boy’s genitals with a hot iron rod.
Unable to bear the harassment, the boy ran away to his father, who lodged a complaint with the police.
A case has been booked against the mother and her second husband. She is at large and efforts are on to nab her.
