A retired army man allegedly stabbed his son to death during an argument and then killed himself near a village in Rajasthan’s Sikar.
Police said 45-year-old Shubhkaran Punia was heavily inebriated when he attacked his son Rajesh, 20, in Hardayalpura village. He was apparently enraged by his son’s admonitions over his drinking habit.
Police are waiting for the post mortem report to rule the incident as suicide, circle officer Ramgarh Shekhawati, Ramchandra Moond, said.
He said the father-son duo was taken to Ramgarh government hospital where doctors declared them brought dead.
Police registered a case against Shubhkaran, a retired havaldar, on the complaint of his daughter.
