A 4-year-old boy was badly burned in an explosion that his father allegedly set off to punish his wife for leaving him.
After his mother, Edie Devletova, 26, and her husband, Edem Devletov, 43, divorced, Emin Devletov was caught in the thick of a nasty divorce dispute.
Edie informed police that after divorcing from Edem, he had threatened to kill or harm their son, and that she had also been subjected to continuous violence.
Edem then kidnapped the boy and transported him to a lonely woodland region in Crimea, Russia, where the gas cylinder exploded, according to local media.
This caused Edie to make the issue public, claiming that police had failed to take her ex’s threats against her and her children seriously.
“My ex-husband forcibly took my child away from me, blackmailed me, and threatened me with violence,” she stated.
“He executed everything he claimed he would do, including blowing up a gas cylinder after bringing the youngster into the woods.”
The father is also accused of delaying dropping the child off with his relatives for two days so that he could undergo hospital treatment.
Enim is now receiving treatment in a hospital in Simferopol, while his father is being treated for burns under armed police protection.
The mother of the young boy has taken to social media to demand “justice.”
“This person with whom I lived for five years takes revenge on me because of the divorce and poses a huge threat to my children,” she wrote in a post online.
“Previously, I lived in fear for five years and was subjected to assault.”
“This dude will not leave me alone now.”
Edie went on to say that she had told police about threats, blackmail, unsolicited private images, beatings, and humiliation on numerous occasions.
She claimed that the police had failed to act on these or previous threats, claiming that her husband had threatened to jump off a cliff with her older kid in January.
“These are my children, and I will fight for them till the end of my days,” she declared.
“I sincerely hope that law enforcement agencies are able to put an end to it.”
Emin was in a medical institution with burns to his limbs and face, according to the Russian Investigative Committee. Burns from the explosion in his father’s automobile had affected about 13% of his body.
“His condition is more stable, and there is no threat to his life,” the Committee said in a statement.
The committee stated that it was looking into the mother’s claims.
“Her spouse has proven a variety of unlawful crimes against the boy’s mother,” the statement stated.
“The matter of filing a criminal complaint is being addressed.”
On Wednesday, October 13, a criminal complaint was filed against the boy’s father for attempted murder of a kid and “abuse” of a lady.
He’s still in the hospital, surrounded by armed cops.
