In a shocking incident, a 53-year-old man, in an inebriated state, allegedly hacked his 20-year-old son to death at their residence in Uppupadanna village under the limits of Payyavur Police in Kannaur district of Kerala on Saturday.
The accused, identified as Saji George, has been arrested. He initially told the police that his son Sharon had not given food to their pet dog, therefore he murdered him. However, later he confessed to having planned Sharonâ€™s elimination beforehand.
He said that he was angry with his son for deliberately pushing him during an argument on the previous day. So, he stabbed him to death. Neighbours took Sharon to a hospital, where medics declared him brought dead.
The now-deceased youthâ€™s mother resides in Italy. She works as a nurse there. His neighbours said that Saji was habitual of returning home in an inebriated condition. This resulted in frequent fights between him and Sharon, according to a report byÂ The New Indian Express.
Police said that the accused was drunk when he committed the crime. HeÂ has been sent to remand custody after being produced in a court.
