Ravi Kumar, additional superintendent of police (ASP Agra west), said, "Guddu Khan has been arrested for torturing his son.

The child has been sent for a medical examination. His statement will be recorded for further action." During interrogation, Khan claimed that he was not under the influence of liquor but was angry at his son over his behaviour. At the time of the incident, his wife was away at her sister's house. Neighbours alleged that the man had also thrown hot water on the child.
