A father burned his son to death at home after the boy failed to answer a schoolwork question, Charmingpro reports
The heinous crime occurred in the family’s apartment in Karachi, Pakistan.
Dad Nazir Khan became agitated when his 12-year-old son failed to complete the task assigned to him.
Nazir then poured kerosene on Shaheer Khan and lit a match to scare him into finishing his homework.
Unfortunately, the flame ignited the oil, igniting the child.
Mother Shazia rushed into the room after hearing her son’s screams, where both parents threw blankets and clothes on the burning child in a desperate attempt to extinguish the flames.
The 12-year-old suffered severe burns after the incident on September 14 in the city’s Orangi town and was rushed to the hospital.
Unfortunately, the doctors’ efforts were insufficient to save him, and he died as a result of his injuries two days later.
Shazia took two days to grieve her son’s painful death after the horrific incident before deciding to file a case against her husband.
