BENGALURU: A 49-year-old man was allegedly stabbed to death by his brother in front of their mother over a trivial issue in Banasawadi on Wednesday.

The deceased has been identified as Oscar Rozario, a resident of Kariyanapalya. Police arrested Ryan Rozorio, (39). Both brothers are plumbers and were living along with their 79-year-old mother.

A senior police officer said that the family hails from Andhra Pradesh. On Wednesday night, Ryan had taken his mother to a hospital as she was not well. After treatment they returned home and Oscar was not in the house. The door was locked.

Ryan tried to reach Oscar over phone but  it was switched off. Ryan made his mother sit outside the house and went in search of Oscar. After a while, Oscar returned with a packet of eggs and Ryan started abusing him for locking the house without informing him and threw the eggs on the floor. Enraged, Ryan then went inside the kitchen and brought a knife. He stabbed Oscar repeatedly in front of his mother.

The neighbours who heard Oscar’s cries rushed him to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead.  Banasawadi police were alerted about the incident and Ryan was nabbed.  He would often scold Oscar for not taking care of their mother and his addiction to alcohol.
