The injured's husband owes the accused money. After an argument over the money dispute, the accused allegedly barged into the house and hurt his wife.
The 55-year-old father of the girl, who was attacked with sickles last Saturday, is in critical condition at a private hospital in Madurai.
While the boy claimed that he attacked his father for regularly giving him corporal punishment, the man said the boy retaliated for scolding his son for bringing home another person’s footwear.
The top court said the approach of the high court was "erroneous" in suspending the conviction and sentence of the Lok Sabha MP in the case.
After deboarding the auto, the accused attacked the victim with an iron rod and even tried to stab him with a knife.
The HC reasoned that the accused had no intention of murdering the victim and the injury was caused during a fight.
