Two men, one as old as 70 years, were killed by their own sons in two incidents of patricide in Tripura following family quarrels, the police said in Agartala on Monday.

A police spokesperson said Saptami Tripura, 70, and Budhirai Debbarma, 41, a teacher, were hacked to death by their sons late on Sunday in south and west Tripura districts respectively.

The police have arrested Tripura's son, while Budhirai's attacker is absconding.

"Family disputes were reasons for both the crimes," the police official said.
