A 24-year-old man hacked his parents to death for not getting him married and giving his share of property in Mossur under Timiri Police Station limits, late on Monday.

Mani (55) and his wife Vasantha (47) of Mossur village were hacked to death by their elder son Muralidharan around 9.30 pm. The police registered a case against Muralidharan under section 302 (murder) of the IPC following a complaint by his brother Gnanaprakasam and launched a search for him. The family was living in their farmland, which was about 2 km from the village.

Enquiry revealed that Muralidharan, who was helping his father in agricultural activities, had been asking his parents to get him married. He had  also been demanding partition of farmlands and other properties.

However, Mani was against partition of the assets. After the death of Sivasakthi (19), younger brother of Muralidharan a month ago due to kidney failure, their parents did not show interest in dividing their property or looking for a bride for Muralidharan, said Inspector of Police and Investigation Officer S Senthil Vinayagam.

Angered over this, Muralidharan quarrelled with Mani on Monday night. The wordy quarrel took an ugly turn when Muralidharan grabbed a wooden log and attacked his father. Gnanaprakasam (22), Vasanthi and her brother Baskar (25) came to the rescue of Mani. Muralidharan, nonetheless, took a sharp sickle and tried to hack Mani. Gnanaprakasam along with Baskar tried to save his parents. When their parents ran outside the house, Muralidharan chased and hacked them to death. He dragged their bodies from the field and left them outside their house. He escaped from the place on a bicycle.
