Drunkard son kills father

A 70-year-old man was murdered allegedly by his son in Hayathnagar police limits.

According to police, the victim, Sri Yadagiri, was killed on the spot after he was hit on the head with a brick by his son Ramesh on Sunday night at their residence in Kameshwari Nagar of Kuntlur. Yadagiri was a dealer in Ayurvedic medicines.

The accused, Ramesh, was married to a girl about two years ago. Since he was a habitual drunkard, she had left him and went away to her parents’ residence a few days ago. On Sunday night, Ramesh came to his house in inebriated condition and picked up an argument with his mother Ellamma and sister-in-law Narasamma. When his father Yadagiri tried to intervene, he hit him on the head with a brick killing him on the spot.

Hayathnagar police have registered a case of murder against Ramesh and began investigation. (INN)
