According to NDTV, the boy who is said to be critical and battling for life was thrashed to the ground and badly hit on the head with a stick by the accused.

This incident happened when the boy was trying to protect his younger brother from being beaten up by the man.

Soon after the injury, the boy was taken to a private hospital for an emergency surgery but his condition still continues to be serious as he has sustained skull fracture, internal bleeding and lung injury.

The boy also had bruises all over his body including his 4-year-old brother who also sustained injuries.

After this news spread across the state, the Child Helpline authorities received information about the child's worsening health condition from a hospital staff.

Currently, the health and social justice departments in the city will be taking over the protection of the boy and his younger brother, who is said to be with some relatives now. 

According to Onmanorama, the mother started living with this man after her husband passed away a year ago.
