KOTTAYAM: The burnt body of an elderly woman was found at Kanakkary on Sunday. The deceased is Chinnamma, 85, wife of late Joseph of Kanakary Vazhakalayil. The Kuruvalingad police suspect it to be a case of murder and have taken Chinnamma’s son Binuraj, 47,  and his accomplice Viswambaran into custody.

Chinnamma’s body was found burnt beyond recognition on the South side of the property located on Kanakary Victor George Road.

It was Binuraj who alerted the police about sighting the body. “He also alerted his sister and brother-in-law. According to them, Binuraj told them that he found their mother’s burnt body near banana trees,” said the police.

It is suspected that the body was burnt using petrol. Petrol and a cigarette lighter were recovered from the spot. The police are yet to confirm if Binuraj murdered Chinnamma.
