A 55-year-old old woman is struggling for life after being shot at by her 20-year-old son in Bihar’s rural Patna at around 10:30 pm on Tuesday.  Reportedly, the woman had called the accused several times for dinner while he was engaged in chatting with his friends.

Enraged by ‘the disruption in conversation’, he shot his mother in the head with a country-made pistol, leaving her “critically injured”.

The incident happened at Sitapur village under the territorial jurisdiction of the Maranchi Police Station. Acting swiftly, police arrested the accused, identified as Angad Yadav, early on Wednesday.

The country-made pistol used in the crime has been recovered from his possession. The injured mother, identified as Manjur Devi, was given initial treatment at a private hospital in Begusarai and was later shifted to Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) on Wednesday, said the police.

The Maranchi Police Station SHO said that the injured woman’s son was busy chatting with his friends outside their house on Wednesday.  Despite being called several times for dinner, the accused remained out and continued chatting with his friends.

“As Manju Devi was about to step inside the main door after calling her son, Angad came from behind and shot her in the head from a very close range in a fit of rage for disrupting his conversation,” a report by The Times of India quoted the SHO as saying.

The incident was witnessed by Manju’s sister-in-law. Based on her statement, police registered an FIR against the accused and arrested him from behind the jungle area behind their house in the initial hours of Wednesday.

The SHO told TOI, “He was about to fire on the police also at the time of the arrest but his loaded pistol cocked.” During interrogation, the accused said that he had bought the weapon from Munger for Rs 7,500 around six months ago.
