    'Abnormal circumstances made my son attack Rathore'
    • S. K. Sharma, a Banaras Hindu University (BHU) professor and father of the youth who Monday attacked former Haryana police chief S. P. S. Rathore, said "abnormal circumstances" must have forced his son to stab Rathore, but "he should have not taken law into his hands."

      "For the last four-six months, he (Utsav Sharma) was under treatment for depression... But I don't know how severe the depression was... Naturally, abnormal circumstances must have forced him to do so," Sharma told reporters in Varanasi, some 250 km from Lucknow.

      "He (Utsav) used to say he could not tolerate injustice and talked on such matters... Yesterday only I spoke to him... Be it my son or anyone, no one is allowed to take law in his hands," said Professor Sharma associated with the mechanical engineering department of the BHU.

    • "We have spoken to his family in Varanasi and to his doctor with whom he was undergoing treatment for a psychological problem in Ahmedabad. He suffers from mood disorder syndrome," Chandigarh's Senior Superintendent of Police S. S. Srivastava told reporters.
