Varanasi: In a distressing incident in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, a father’s anger took a tragic turn when he attempted suicide as his sons refused to get a haircut. Shiv Prakash Singh, a 40-year-old resident, found himself in critical condition after shooting himself with a revolver following a dispute with his sons.

Heated argument between father and his sons over haircut

The incident took place in Thatra village, located in the Mirzamurad police station area of Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi. On the auspicious occasion of Holi, Shiv Prakash had instructed his sons, Satya (18) and Shubham (16), to get their hair cut. However, upon his return home later that day, he found that his sons had not complied with his request. This led to a heated argument between Shiv Prakash and his sons.

According to information, Shiv Prakash retreated to his room after the argument escalated. Shortly thereafter, a gunshot was heard emanating from his room. Family members rushed to the spot to find Shiv Prakash lying injured, surrounded by blood. He was promptly rushed to the Trauma Center at BHU, where he remains in critical condition.

Domestic dispute

Upon investigation, the police recovered a licensed pistol along with five cartridges from the scene. An additional .32 bore cartridge was also found. Police station head Anand Chaurasia said, “The matter appears to be a domestic dispute, but we are conducting a thorough investigation. We will record Shiv Prakash’s statement once he regains consciousness.”

Shiv Prakash’s wife corroborated the sons’ negligence regarding the haircut, attributing it to her husband’s drastic actions. She said, “My sons did not get their hair cut, which led to Shiv Prakash taking this extreme step.”

Meanwhile, doctors attending to Shiv Prakash have confirmed his critical condition and ongoing treatment. “His condition remains critical, but we are hopeful for his recovery,” said medical personnel involved in his care.
