crime

KOTTAYAM: A 62-year-old man was beaten to death by his son after the duo got into a heated argument. The incident happened when the man’s wife and eldest son were not at home. The dead has been identified as Zachariya, a native of Vadasseri in Chengalam. The Kumarakom police have arrested his son Arun. Zachariya’s wife was in the hospital by-standing her eldest son who sustained injuries in an accident. Only the two were at home at the time of the incident. Arun came home drunk and beat his father to death following a verbal dispute. He has confessed the crime to the police.


The locals informed the incident to the police yesterday. Arun first told police that his father fell down from the bed and sustained injuries. When questioned again, he changed his statement and told them that his father was a heart patient and died falling from the bed. The Kumarakom sub inspector Rejan Kumar took him into custody and when questioned again he told him the truth. Blood stains were found on the floor. Spinal cord injury was mentioned in the post-mortem report. He had head injuries also. The funeral was held yesterday itself.
