hi Piyali Ganguly! I understand your concerns. please see the source of such aggression.. if it's due to cartoons as u mentioned please monitor it and reduce the screen time to max 1 hour per day. most importantly plan a routine for him , where there is a fixed schedule , time allocated for all activities including outdoor and indoor play, rest, studies , etc. whenever u r back from office ask him how was his day. spend half an hour 45 minutes talking to him. love him ,hug him. check what he did during the day , ask him what he could have done better and praise him for good work. u need to constantly monitor him so if feasible keep giving calls from office. also tell people at home to guide him to follow schedule . Piyali spend quality time with him. hope this will be of help to u

Piyali it's important for the child to channelize his energies in the right direction. as u mentioned earlier he has bundle of energies , it needs to be directed in play or some other constructive form. is it possible for them to pick and drop him to an activity class of his choice? or he could invite friends at home and they could play board games or any other game of their choice . aggression could be due to not being able to utilize his energies in play with agemates or go outdoors , so try and use it in a useful and healthy form by having a trustworthy group of friends in the neighborhood who could take care of him in your absence. they could send their children to ur home or vice versa.
