A 65-year-old man was killed by his son in-law in Weavers’ Colony on Bannerghatta Road on Saturday night.

The victim has been identified as Susainathan, a resident of Anekal. He was a daily wager.

The accused, Sagairaj, 42, works as a security guard at a granite factory in Jigani.

The police said that Sagairaj had married Susainathan’s daughter Mary 10 years ago and the couple had no children. But during the last few years, they reportedly quarrelled over financial issues and Sagairaj was allegedly harassing Mary frequently.

Upset over this Mary had deserted her husband and had gone to her parents house.

In an effort to advise his son-in-law, on Saturday night Susainathan went to Sagairaj’s house and the duo consumed alcohol. After a while the duo picked up a quarrel and in the melee Sagairaj dragged Susainathan to the forest area near his house and allegedly killed him by smashing his head with a stone and fled the scene. On Sunday morning the police learnt about the incident and arrested Sagairaj.
