Father beats son to death over exam results

He allegedly beat the 12-year-old with a computer cable for not bringing home exam results

A 12-year-old boy who did not get his exam results home was allegedly beaten to death by his father.

According to media reports, the child’s mother found him crying upon her return home the day her husband had called to inform her that their son had not brought his exam results.

The boy complained to his mom that his father had beaten him with a computer cable despite him telling that the school would distribute the results only the following morning.

That evening, as the boy was sleeping with his mother, the suspect returned and snatched the child and began beating up again with the cable.

The mother was reported as saying that the child all the while swore that he had not received the certificate. But the father was not willing to accept the reason.
Early morning, the following day, the nam once again woke up his minor son and continued beating until he dropped unconscious.
The mother scooped him up and rushed him to a hospital and reported that the child had a fall. However, once the doctors confirmed he was dead, the mother broke down and recounted the torture that preceded at home.
The man was arrested and told police that he did not intent killing his son and that he only wanted him to do give his best at school.
