A 21-year-old man, who allegedly killed his mother in Mumbai and drew a smiley with her blood near the body, was arrested on Thursday from Rajasthan’s Jodhpur city, police said.

Siddhant Ganore was held from a hotel near the railway station following a tip-off from Mumbai police, said Madan Beniwal, the station house officer of Udaimandir.

Siddhant was absconding after allegedly stabbing his 42-year-old mother, Dipali, at their house in Mumbai’s Santacruz on Tuesday night.

“Tired of her. Catch me and hang me,” Siddhant wrote in blood on the floor before fleeing.

Beniwal said Siddhant admitted to killing his mother out of depression. Mumbai police have been asked to take the accused into custody, he said.

Siddhant was angry at his mother who had admonished him over his falling grades and had also refused to give him pocket money, police said in Mumbai.

His father, Dnyeshwar Ganore, is a Mumbai police inspector and was in the team that investigated the Sheena Bora murder case.

Ganore, who is posted at the Khar police station, discovered his wife’s body past midnight after returning from work.

Siddhant, police said, had dropped out of an engineering course and was studying at the National College.

His friends said he had been keeping aloof for the last two months, and avoided social media platforms.
