THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Aruvikkara Police on Sunday arrested a 48-year-old man for murdering his mother in an inebriated state. A former soldier, Shibu, was arrested after the postmortem results suggested that Nandini was beaten to death. 

According to the police, Shibu reportedly suffered from mental illness because of which he quit the Army after serving for 14 long years. He stayed with his mother in Kachani and used to thrash her under the influence of alcohol.
