People often do bizarre things to get rid of their addiction. Earlier, a video of a woman from Telangana rubbing chilli powder onto the eyes of her teenaged son to punish him for marijuana addiction went viral. The woman tied her 15-year-old boy to a pole and resorted to this punishment after all her efforts to wean her son away from marijuana went in vain. According to a report in Sakshi, the woman is Ramanamma from Suryapet district who is a daily wage worker. Her husband is a rickshaw driver. The son used to attend school before the pandemic, but dropped out later.
He then got addicted to marijuana and did not mend his ways despite several warnings. This time, when he went missing from home for 10 days and came back in a drugged state, the mother tied him to a pole and rubbed chilli powder on his eyes.
The Sakshi report said that the video was shot by a neighbour and released on social media. The local police have registered a case against the mother. Speaking to Sakshi, Ramanamma said that she had to resort to this extreme act after the boy refused to mend his ways. She added that they would often find him lying on roads in a drugged state and they would carry him back.
