The Maratamuttom police in Kerala are on the lookout for a man for attempting to kill his step son by hanging his from the ceiling fan. The man has gone into hiding after the police filed a case on the class 4 student's statement.
The incident came to light after the minor's teacher noticed bruises on his neck and questioned him. The minor in his statement to the police said that his step father tied his legs with a rope and made a noose with it around his neck.
The father then allegedly hung him from the ceiling fan and switched it on. The boy added that the man also thrashed him after bringing him down from the fan.
The child is said to have been tormented after he wore his brother's uniform to school and tore it accidentally while returning home. The accused is on the run and the police have registered a case of attempt to murder against him.
