According to police, Ranjith is an alcoholic and also a fisherman. He used to beat his wife after his drunk bouts and Berkuman used to question this practice. A rage brewed inside and forced Ranjith to commit this grave crime. Berkuman who used to live with his other sister was sleeping after a good day's work. Ranjith who lives nearby saw the opportunity, grabbed a stone and smashed it into the face of a sleeping Berkuman. He hit him in the face several times.
