Warangal (Andhra Pradesh): A six-year-old boy was strangulated to death allegedly by his father in Valmidi village here, police said on Thursday.

While Rakesh managed to escape, Kamal died on the spot after he was strangulated, following which the accused buried him in a nearby field.

According to police, Anjaiah wanted to seek revenge from his wife by killing their two children as he doubted her character, police added.
