HYDERABAD: A father allegedly killed his two-year-old son at their residence in Prashanth Nagar, Langar Houz, on Friday.
Langar Houz police said that Haseeb allegedly took his son to the first floor and slit the throat of the minor boy. By the time the boy’s mother and other family members realised, the father left the house.
“The accused is at large and hence we don’t know the motive behind the murder. The victim died on the spot,” Langar Houz inspector K Srinivas said.
According to police, the accused has been suffering from some health issues for the last few months and is unemployed.
The father took a kitchen knife and took the son along with him. Suspecting that the accused might do something, his wife followed them but it was too late. The boy was shifted to hospital, where he was declared brought dead. Based on the details given by the family, police reached the spot and a case was registered.
The accused was seen walking on the road on the CCTV.
