The UK government reportedly takes custody of a 16-year-old teenager following reports of being flogged by his father who’s a doctor.
According to reports, the teenager had arranged a study group with two of his friends in his father’s house ahead of their exams.
The father was said to have caught the trio watching an inappropriate video instead of reading for their GCSE exams.
Out of anger, the father was said to have flogged the son in the presence of his two friends who called the police and had him arrested.
The boy was said to have testified that his father often flogged him over his persistence in him studying hard to become a medical doctor like him.
UK’s Courts and Tribunal Hearings, however, took custody of their child until he turns 18.
