HYDERABAD: The body of a 55-year-old woman was exhumed by the Shahinayatgunj police from her house  on Tuesday, a year after her murder. The body has been sent for postmortem. 

Lakshmi Bai alias Ayesha was murdered by her 35-year-old son from first marriage, Khadir Baba, over a property dispute.

Growing suspicious over the long absence of Ayesha, her second husband, Jamaluddin, lodged a police complaint. The Task Force police took her son Baba and daughter Kiran into custody and registered a case against Baba for murder and concealing evidence. Baba admitted during interrogation that he had killed his mother at their residence Goshamahal area a year ago.

Baba confessed that he had hit Ayesha multiple times on her head to kill her on January 14 last year. After making sure of her death, he dug a pit inside the room itself and buried her secretly. Goshamahal ACP K Ram Bhupal Rao said: “Her husband Jamaluddin approached the local PS and expressed his suspicion over her absence. We took Baba into custody and interrogated him.”

According to the police, Laxmi Bai begot two children from her first husband Bajrang Raj. After Raj’s death, she married Jamaluddin and converted to Islam 30 years ago. Jamaluddin constructed a building on Ayesha’s land and was reluctant to vest ownership in Karim Baba. This had led to a dispute. Ayesha and her children were living at Goshamahal whereas Jamaluddin was living with his second wife at Asifnagar. Police said Baba  completed construction of the building after he had buried the victim there.
