A wordy quarrel between families of two relatives at Ambedkar Nagar in Vettuvanam near Pallikonda over a trivial issue took an ugly turn and claimed the life of a seven-year-old boy. Police arrested two persons in this connection.

The deceased was Vinod, son of Jaisankar. The  boy’s mother, Nithya, who developed an extra-marital affair with Kumar of Ambedkar Nagar in Vettuvanam, was living with him. Kumar and his cousin Suresh Kumar (31), who was living with his family in the same area, had a strained relationship.

Martin Premraj, investigation officer, said on Saturday evening, Suresh’s wife Anbumozhi shouted at Vinod stating that he and his parents were throwing garbage into her house. Irked over this, Nithya abused Anbumozhi for shouting at her son. Kumar came to the support of his paramour Nithya and used foul language at Suresh, his sister Sudha and his


Angered over this, Suresh grabbed a stone and threw at Kumar, who managed to escape by a whisker, but the stone hit Vinod, at the back of his head and he collapsed due to profuse bleeding.

Nithya and the neighbours immediately took Vinod to a private hospital near by, but doctors refused to admit him as he was critical. Then, they took him to Government Hospital at Gudiyattam, where the doctors declared him brought dead, added the police officer.

Police arrested Suresh and his sister Sudha in connection with the case and remanded them.
