This Is How Low We Have Stooped.
Beating Own Old Father Who Raised You Is Beyond Imagination.
In the video captured by a neighbour, the frail old man is seen helplessly answering Pradeep's question while he kept on thrashing him for touching the sweets kept in the kitchen without asking him and giving them to his diabetic mother.
