A father has burned his 12-year-old son to death over homework After his son failed to correctly answer a question in his schooling, a father burnt the youngster to death at home. In Karachi, Pakistan, inside the family’s flat, the horrifying tragedy took place. Dad Nazir Khan grew upset when his son, who is 12 years old, was unable to complete the assignment assigned to him. Then, in an effort to scare Shaheer Khan into finishing his schoolwork, Nazir doused him in kerosene and lighted a match. After hearing her son’s screams, mother Shazia hurried into the room where both parents were desperately trying to put out the flames by throwing clothing and blankets over the youngster. Sadly, the flame ignited the oil, which set the kid on fire. After the event in the city’s Orangi town on September 14, the 12-year-old suffered serious burns and was taken to the hospital right away. Sadly, the medical staff’s efforts to rescue him were insufficient, and he passed away from his wounds two days later. Shazia let herself two days to process the horrific event and her son’s sad passing before deciding to initiate a complaint against her husband. Nazir was detained by the police on September 17 and will be held there until a hearing in court on September 24. Salim Khan, a local police officer, told Pakistani news sources that Nazir lost his cool after Shaheer persisted on leaving the house to fly a kite rather than finishing his schoolwork. The 12-year-old youngster provided “unsatisfactory responses” when his father made him answer a series of questions about his schoolwork. According to the father, he scared his son by spilling the extremely flammable liquid on him and then lighting a match as a result. Salim claims that after being detained, Nazir confessed to his crime.
