The father, identified as Mahendra, is seen in the video flogging his 10-year-old son at their home in Bengaluru, India.
The boy is seen with fear in his eyes as he stands facing his father, pleading for mercy.
With his hands stretched out and tears rolling down, his father lands the first blow with a phone charger.
The beating continues over the next two minutes as the father flogs him about 7 times, then lifts him in the air and slams him on the bed twice.
The assault took place at their home in Bengaluru and the father made the boy’s mother, Shilpa, film it on her phone. The reason for the flogging was that the boy had skipped tuition and not completed his homework on time. His father flogged him for lying about these things then asked his mother to film it so the video can be shown to the boy so as to prevent him from lying in the future.
