Son of the year award wrapped up in Kandal

Son of the year award wrapped up in Kandal

Spare the rod and spoil the child, who might then grab a rock and attack you. This was the takeaway for a pair of parents in Kandal’s Sa’ang district on Sunday.

Their son, a drunkard with a bad temper, demanded the couple sell their TV and a pump so he could buy more wine. When they refused, he allegedly grabbed a stone and struck his father.

The next morning, when the parents returned from the health centre, the son renewed the argument, this time injuring his mother.

Locals decided they’d seen enough and called police, who arrested the man. NOKORWAT
