On Sunday, 8 September, Raghuveer reportedly asked his father, a 61-year-old retired police officer, for money to reactivate his mobile Internet.

However, his father refused.

Raghuveer created a ruckus and broke the window panes of his neighbour's house.

His neighbours then reported him to the police.

He was brought to Kakati police station but was let off with a warning, and his father brought him home.

After his phone was snatched from him, Raghuveer attacked his father in a fit of rage. He locked the room where his mother was sleeping and proceeded to behead his father with a sickle.

He then chopped his father's leg off with a sharp cutter.

When the police arrived at the family home, Raghuveer allegedly asked them to wait as he was not done cutting up the body

Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Siva Reddy told The New Indian Express that the suspect was addicted to playing games, especially PUBG on his mobile phone.

A case has since been registered at Kakati police station in Belagavi.
