HYDERABAD: A farmer bludgeoned his father to death at Ambem R village in Nizamabad district suspecting that the latter was having an affair with his wife.
On Tuesday night, the accused, G Gangadhar (28), killed his father, G Gangaram (58), at their cattle shed near the village with the help of his mother Sayavva.
Rudrur inspector Y Ashok Reddy said: “During the preliminary probe, we came to know that 10 days ago, Gangadhar’s wife went to her parent’s house after he accused her of having an affair with Gangaram. We suspect that this may have driven Gangadhar to kill his father,” the inspector said.
After killing Gangaram, Gangadhar placed the body on the cot at the shed and left with his mother. “The accused informed the locals about the murder on Wednesday morning and fled,” the inspector said. The body was sent for postmortem and a case was registered.
