HYDERABAD: A day after a 10-year-old boy was set ablaze by his father in KPHB, the accused was sent to judicial remand on Tuesday.
Police said that Balu, who was allegedly drunk at the time of incident, denied his role in attempting to kill his son, during the investigation. Balu told police that his son was irregular in attending online classes organised by his government school and never used to heed to his father’s advice, which has upset Balu for a long time.
Police said that the victim was still being treated at Gandhi hospital, where he was admitted with 90% burns on his body, and that his condition continues to be critical. Balu was arrested on Monday and produced before a judge, who sent him to judicial remand on Tuesday.
On Sunday night, the accused—allegedly in a drunken state—asked his son to get him a beedi cigarette. Since the boy returned late, Balu attacked him and later doused him with turpentine oil and set the 10-year-old boy on fire.
