Abhignan is the only son of Indresh and Leela, who stayon Vagar Road, Aldur. Abhignan had been given a bath by his mother just minutesbefore the incident. Standing on a chair placed close to the power socket, he managed to hold the cable and put it in his mouth. He fell unconscious. His mother was alone at home when the incident happened.
A police officer said there was no visibleinjury, either in the mouth or any part of his body. Doctors who conducted the autopsy told policetheboy may have died of heart or liver damage.

Many users tend to leave mobile charger cables switched on and this could prove dangerous.
Severed head of infant found on Hyderabad house terrace
Hyderabad: The severed head of a five-month-old infant was found on the terrace of a house at Uppal’s Chilka Nagar, on the outskirts of the city, on Thursday morning.
Cops are yet to locate the remaining body parts and ascertain the child’s identity, said Malkajgiri DCP Ch R Umamaheswara Sarma. The crime was discovered when a resident of the house went to the terrace to dry clothes.
“Because of the lunar eclipse on Wednesday, nobody went to the terrace. Around 11am, I went there and found the baby’s head,” said V Balalakshmi, 55.
Balalakshmi alerted her family, who in turn, summoned the cops. Police reached the spot with the Clues Team and a dog squad. “We examined the area and also did a 3D scan, which captures the entire crime scene in detail, enabling us to go back and check if we’ve missed anything. It may be a case of human sacrifice since there was a lunar eclipse on January 31. A probe is underway,” said a Clues Team officer.
