An eight-year-old boy had to have buckwheat surgically removed from his knees after his stepfather forced him to kneel on a pile of grain seeds in Russia.
Sergey Kazakov, 35, punished the boy for coming home late by having him kneel on the grain for nine consecutive hours, causing seeds to take root in his bloody knees.
The crop had to be surgically removed under general anesthesia in a hospital in Omsk, Russia.
Kazakov also kicked the boy and pulled his hair while he knelt and the boy's mother Alina Yumasheva admitted she had approved the punishment.

Yumasheva claimed that she and Kazakov discovered the form of punishment on the internet.
The mother told the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper: & I checked it myself and set up an experiment.
& # 39; I knelt on it. It didn't hurt me. So he (Kazakov) was allowed to apply this punishment. & # 39;
According to sources, however, the boy had to kneel on grains placed on & # 39; rough sandpaper & # 39; lay people and he heard crying & # 39; it hurts & # 39; when he was kicked by his stepfather.
The couple also starved the boy for up to four days at a time, state researchers claim.
Kazakov told the police that he had once imposed the sentence, but some deleted videos were traced on his phone, researchers say.

Accused: Yumasheva (shown in court) and Kazakov, a computer programmer, are now being tried in Omsk
The boy's ordeal came to light when he fled the family home and begged a female neighbor to help.
She called in doctors because of the horrific wounds on the knees of the child from whom blood flowed.
Kazakov, a computer programmer and Yumasheva are now being tried in Omsk.
The couple is examined for torture, which damages the health of the boy and does not properly educate the boy.
He was taken into custody and she was forbidden to leave her house pending criminal investigation.

After a month in the hospital, however, the boy is again in her care, say Russian reports.
This despite the fact that the boy and his nurse begged the hospital: & # 39; Do you want me to live in a good family now? & # 39;
The child's class teacher, Olga Pidzhakova, said the boy was academically smart, but she believed he had been afraid to complain.
& # 39; He is a good, positive child, & # 39; she said. & # 39; His mother constantly attends parent meetings, comes when I call.
& # 39; He is always clean and nicely dressed.
& # 39; Neither I nor other teachers or children even knew he was being bullied at home. Only now do I notice that he was just afraid of complaining to us. & # 39;
