Siddhant Ganore, 21, son of a police inspector who murdered his 42-year-old mother last week, is suffering from acute depression and frustration for more than a year, said officers from Vakola police station.

Siddhant started hating his mother and distanced himself from her in 2012. He also told investigators that his family was “dysfunctional”.

Siddhant said he did not make a single friend in the past one year and went into depression owing to the daily fights he witnessed between his parents. He also said that his mother often taunted him over his academic performance and other things.

Investigators said they are questioning Siddhant to understand his family background and ascertain the motive behind him taking the drastic step. Officers said he told them that he was sent to a hostel so that problems straining his parents’ relationship did not affect.

Siddhant told the police that his mother was ‘controlling’ his life, which he hated. Apart from chiding him for poor academic performance, she also taunted him over his father as she suspected him of having an affair. He said the constant bickering between his parents and his mother’s taunts of him being ‘like his father’ enraged him.

The case

Last Tuesday, Siddhant Ganore murdered his mother Deepali by stabbing her 12 times (five times in neck, four times in hand and three times in chest) with a kitchen knife. Siddhant told the police that he wanted to commit suicide, but his mother’s screams provoked him further. Siddhant had failed the FYBSs exams and had not informed his mother about it. After hiding the result for few days, he ran out of excuses. It was day his mother insisted on seeing his results that Ganore killed her.
