HYDERABAD, India (WPEC) - A butcher in India is accused of chopping off his son's hand due to the teen's addiction to pornography, according to the Hindustan Times.

The news agency reported 45-year-old Mohammad Qayyum Qureshi caught his 18-year-old son watching a pornographic film on his new smartphone in Hyderabad. Police said the father and his son had an argument about the habit on Sunday. The father tried to grab the phone but the teen, who bit his father's hand, took off. The two argued again the next morning and that's when police say the father grabbed a butcher's knife and cut off his son's right hand. Family members rushed over and took the teen to the hospital.

Police said the father is being held on a charge of attempt to murder, according to the Times.
