In a heart-wrenching incident, a man reportedly abandoned his father on National Highway-4 on the outskirts of Dharwad city on Wednesday evening. The local residents who noticed him wandering on the road informed the police, who shifted him to the orphanage on the civil hospital premises in Dharwad.

The man in question - Vincent Christine (76) - claims that he is a resident of Mattikere in Bengaluru and wants to go home and stay with his son.

Vincent, 76, is a former mechanic. He has been urging the people at the orphanage to either help him reach his home in Bengaluru or shift him to a nearby church, so that he is taken care of there.

He says he has no money to buy medicines and asks people to offer him a job, so that he can earn a square meal and meet the expenditure for medicines.

District surgeon Giridhar Kukanoor said Christine was fit and fine, but was suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Because of this, he keeps changing his statements.
