Hyderabad: A woman allegedly branded her nine-year-old son's private parts with a hot spoon and forced him to drink her urine among other forms of torture with the help of her paramour in Jeedimetla area here. All the wrong the boy did was he wanted to go to his father from whom the mother is separated and living with another man in Gajula Ramaram.
The incident came to light on Thursday when the boy escaped from the clutches of the cruel mother and her paramour and reached a traffic police station at Suraram Colony in Jeedimetla area on Thursday. The police helped the boy to go to his father who stays in Sangareddy.
Father of the boy Murali Krishna lodged a complaint with Jeedimetla police, after the minor escaped from his mother Anusha's house and came to his house in Sangareddy town.
According to the police, the boy was allegedly tortured by Anusha after he expressed his desire to stay with father. Krishna alleged that Anusha and her second husband Ashok Reddy tortured the boy regularly by beating him up and had also branded his private parts with a hot spoon, said Jeedimetla Sub-Inspector K. Lingya Naik.
Police have booked Anusha and Reddy under section 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) of IPC and under relevant sections of Juvenile Justice Act, and are searching for the duo, who are absconding, police said.
Krishna and Anusha who got married in 2005 have two sons, Vishnuvardhan(11) and Harshavardhan(9). "Owing to the family dispute, Anusha had left their house along with her two sons five months back, and later married Reddy," the officer said. Further probe is on.
