A thug who left a four-year-old boy with a fractured skull after savagely beating him because he interrupted his CONVERSATION has been caged for nine years.
Vishar Jain, 44, flipped when the lad “sighed” while he tried to talk to the boy’s mother while they watched an episode of Dr Who together on March 23.
Birmingham Crown Court heard Jain launched a sickening attack of “uncontrollable violence” on the toddler which left him fighting for life in intensive care for two weeks.
The young victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, suffered a fractured skull, broken collar bone, cuts to his mouth and dozens of bruises to his tiny body.
The warped computer engineer also attacked the victim’s mother, who he had been in a relationship for two years, when she desperately tried to protect her son.
Jain admitted causing grievous bodily harm with intent and common assault when he appeared at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday.
Judge Philip Parker QC told the court that before the shocking scenes it had been an ordinary afternoon with the three of them watching an episode of Dr Who.
Jailing him for nine years, Judge Philip Parker QC told him: “You became irritated by his behaviour when he was sitting between and his mother.
“You chastised him and then what followed was a quite unexplained outburst of uncontrollable violence which was your reaction to no more than the child simply sighing.”
The court heard Jain rained punches and kicks on the boy who was sitting on the sofa next to his mother.
He then twice hurled the terrified boy onto the wooden floor at the mother’s home in Weoley Castle, West Mids., before stamping on him until he was unconscious.
Jain, of Edgbaston, Birmingham, then punched the boy’s mother in the face when she tried to intervene.
Prosecutor Claire Harris told the court the boy uttered something that Jain interpreted as interrupting the adults’ conversation.
She said he slapped the child on his face. When his mother tried to intervene he slapped and punched her.
Miss Harris added: “He then lifted him up into the air and dropped him on the floor.”
She told the court Jain then smashed the lad’s head on the wooden floor before repeatedly kicking and stamping on him.
The boy’s mother told the court she heard the “banging noise” as her son hit the floor and feared he was dead.
The court heard the victim has been left so traumatised by the attack that he suffers nightmares and even lapses into ‘zombie-like’ trances.
Gerard Cullen, defending, said: “It is perhaps more by luck than judgement that the child has, in fact, recovered well from his physical injuries.
“Psychologically, of course, it is going to take a lot longer.
“This was not a case where there was any premeditation at all. This defendant simply snapped.”
The court heard there a “significant risk” Jain would behave in a totally unjustified and irrational way again.
Speaking after the case, Detective Constable Hayley Bubb, from Birmingham’s Child Protection Team at West Midlands Police, said: “This was an unprovoked and sustained attack on a defenceless child, which he has never explained.”
