THANE: A 22-year-old youth from Vehloli village in Shahapur taluka allegedly killed his drunk father on Ganesh Chaturthi day, a police official said here today.

Police inspector Pravin Kolhe of the Khinavali police station under Shahapur told PTI that the victim Namdeo Mukne, (50) used to come home frequently drunk.

His son Santosh (22) was annoyed with his father's drunken behaviour and wanted to end the problem, the police official said.

Yesterday afternoon at about 3.30 pm when his father came home heavily drunk and quarrelled with family members, his son allegedly picked up a grinding stone and hit his father with it, after which he died on the spot, the police official said, adding that his body has been sent for postmortem.

An offence under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code has been registered and a hunt is on for the accused who is still at large, the police official said.
