Youth almost beheads father, tries to re-join it with adhesive

Allegedly angry with his 70-year old father after the latter passed stool inside the house, a youth first tried to behead him and then made an attempt to re-join the severed part with an adhesive in Uttar Pradesh's Basti district.

The septuagenarian was admitted to the hospital, where his condition is stated to be critical.

According to the police sources here, the youth, identified as Jagadish Mishra, a resident of Bhaisahva village in the district, got angry after his father Ramdeo Mishra, a retired government servant, passed stool inside the house on Saturday evening.

Ramdeo was said to be suffering from ''bowel incontinence'' (inability to control bowel movements causing leakage of stool).

An angry Jagadish brutally assaulted his father and then tried to kill him, sources said. He tried to behead Ramdeo with a kitchen knife. The old man tried to shout for help but Jagadish increased the volume of the TV in a bid to prevent the neighbours from hearing the cries.

As Ramdeo bled profusely, Jagadish got panicked and tried to re-join the severed part of the neck with an adhesive. He later bolted the door from outside and fled with his family.

The neighbours later rushed Ramdeo to the hospital. The doctors said that the old man had suffered serious injuries on his neck and was critical.

Police said that a case had been registered and a hunt was launched to nab the culprit.
