A 75-year-old man in nearby Vadaseri area was allegedly murdered by his own son who used a boulder to silence his father's persistent cough, police said on Friday.

Arokia John had confessed that despite medication, the cough of his father Maria Bhagyanathan could not be controlled, police said.

After feeling harassed when his sleep was continously disturbed, John on Thursday used a boulder he found near his house to kill his father, who was a daily wager, they added.
