Police learnt that the reason for the father's anger was that he had learnt that his son had stolen a pen drive from a neighbour’s house. The suspect father( 48) was a father of six from the Watagoda area. His son was a grade six student. He was admitted with burn injuries to his hands and face to the Nuwara Eliya General Hospital.
