A 19-year-old boy held prisoner for 2 years by his British dad, has been released after police raided their family home and found him in a room with windows and bars. He was carried out in a blanket for fear of infections.
Both father and son live in Spain.

Officers of the law said he had suffered malnutrition, having lived in starvation for two years. His heartless father has been arrested and charged to court for unlawful detention and family violence.
The emaciated British boy was said to be weighing just over six stone at the time he was rescued.
According to a report, the father is of Indian decent but has a British citizenship. The family lived in Rivas Vaciamadrid district of Madrid.

It was a lucky moment for the tortured victim who gained freedom after he got access to a computer in the house and sent an emergency email to the police, disclosing his house location and begging the officers to carry out a raid.
According to local reports, the boy wrote in his email: “Rescue. Assistance. Help me. I am desperate.
“My father abuses me. I am held prisoner. Please, do not get in touch with me because he would kill me.”

A police spokesman said: “When officers entered the house, they found the boy with severe physical symptoms and extremely thin.
“He was disoriented and suffered physical injuries from the beatings he had received from his father.”
Police released images taken at the scene to the general public to show man’s wickedness to a biological son. The rubbish-strewn house, according to reports from neighbors, is said to be infested with rats and cockroaches.
The rescued teenager was taken to a hospital for medical check-ups and he’s now living with his mom and sister.
There are speculations that the man may be mentally unstable as investigations are yet to prove if he’s a divorced and why he lives alone with the boy.
The father, who has not been named, reportedly claimed neighbors were trying to poison them through the water system and that he was being targeted by the Russian mafia.
He has since been released on bail, the report confirms.
