The police were finally able to locate and arrest the mother, who branded her nine-year-old for refusing to stay with her and her second husband.

The police located the woman and her husband in Yadadri. The couple had gone into hiding after realising that the son had escaped the house.

The horror came to light after the boy’s biological father Murali Krishna approached the police in Jeedimetla, a day after the minor escaped from his mother's house.

According to police, the boy allegedly was tortured after he expressed his desire to stay with Krishna. The boy told the police that his mother used to  beat him up and also reportedly made him drink urine. 

Police have booked Anusha and Reddy on charges of voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means under IPC and under relevant sections of the Juvenile Justice Act.
