AGARTALA: In a rather unexpected development, a man attacked his son leading to severe injuries. He was mentioned to be in an inebriated state when the incident took place.
The minor who was injured in the attack is now undergoing treatment at the Gomati District Hospital. He was reportedly injured after his father had attacked him with a sharp cutter. The incident took place at the Jatanbari Shanti Colony in the Nutanbazar Police Station of Amarpur on Tuesday.
Tripura Police have registered a case against the person named Haripada Sarkar. Locas have mentioned that the attacker is a habitual drinker and accused him of creating a fuss after returning home every evening. And that he used to threaten everyone, including the neighbours with a sharp object if they objected to what he was saying.
A similar incident unfolded on Tuesday when he came home after work. When his wife objected to such behaviour, he attacked her with a sharp object, but the item missed the mark and hit their minor son instead. She was taken to the Nutanbazar Hospital immediately, but the doctors in the facility referred the case to the district hospital for better medical care as the injury to the child was very serious.
The police informed that the injury was very serious in nature and the minor received ten stitches. It is important to note that the father was not arrested by the police.
Previously, following an incident of physical abuse of two young girls on a moving public transport vehicle, personnel from the Indian Army were beaten up by the public and then handed over to the Guwahati Police. The incident took place somewhere near the Assam Engineering College campus. The jawan named Dipak Singh, belonging to Madhya Pradesh was going by tempo from the Assam Engineering College campus to Jalukbari when he inappropriately touched two of his female co-passengers on the tempo. Following the incident, the girls raised a hue and cry, which led to the public gathering at the location and roughing up the personnel. After that, the public handed him over to the Jalukbari Police.
