Infuriated over son's addiction to smartphone, man 'cuts off' teen's hand The police arrested Qureshi under section 307 of IPC (attempt to murder).

Hyderabad: Infuriated over his son's addiction to smartphone and films, a man allegedly cut off the teenager's right hand from the wrist with a knife.

Qayyum Qureshi, a butcher by profession, was arrested Tuesday morning.

"The 18-year-old victim, who works for a cable operator, had recently bought a smartphone and continuously watched films on it despite his father warning him against it," a police officer said.

The father and son had a heated argument over the issue two days ago. During the tiff, the son allegedly bit Qureshi.

An infuriated Qureshi cut off the son's right hand when the latter was asleep Monday night, the officer said.

The victim's mother lodged a complaint with the police. The police arrested Qureshi under section 307 of IPC (attempt to murder).

Qureshi's son was undergoing treatment at a hospital and his condition was stable.
