HYDERABAD: A woman, with help from her son, allegedly murdered her alcoholic husband near Narsingi in the city on Thursday night. The mother-son duo then dumped the body on the roadside to evade any investigation. But cross-questioning brought the truth out, police said on Friday.
It was their persistent torture that the Intermediate student (17) and his mother Kote Bhagyamma (40) decided to end the ‘menace’. On Thursday too, Kote Paramesh picked a fight with his family members after reaching home fully inebriated. As he picked up a bottle of kerosene to set everyone ablaze, the woman, with help from the son, killed him, said Narsingi police. Police arrested Bhagyamma and her son, and produced in the court on Friday.
Paramesh and Bhayamma had been living at Janwada village, near Narsingi, for over two decades. While Paramesh grazed buffaloes for a living, Bhagyamma, the son (17) and the daughter (13) stayed home. Recently, they began building a new home in the village and that landed them in financial difficulties. As a result, Paramesh started harassing his wife for money and started coming home drunk every night and would beat up his wife and children.
“While the girl and Bhagyamma’s mother were sleeping in one room on the first floor, the mother and the son strangulated Paramesh with a towel. Around 2 am, after he died, they carried the body to the ground floor and dumped it on the road.” said Narsingi police inspector GV Ramana Goud.
