A 22-year-old man allegedly killed his father in Chembur, on Sunday, for refusing to give money to buy liquor.
Shyam Waghmare, who is absconding, allegedly hit his 50-year-old father Ramesh Waghmare on the head with a stone used to cover a drain, after the latter refused to give him Rs 50 to purchase liquor.
The police said Shyam had earlier attacked his father, on Saturday, for the same reason.
Senior Police Inspector of Chembur police station Bhimrao Rathod said, “Shyam approached Ramesh again on Sunday, and when the latter refused to give him money again, Shyam hit with him again on the injury he sustained the previous day. Ramesh succumbed to the injuries.”
An officer from the Chembur police station said, “ In his statement, Sagar said Ramesh was an alcoholic and unemployed. He would have frequent fights with his family members, as he was not earning money himself, but would constantly pester his family for the same.”
Sagar, added that they did not approach the police on Saturday when Shyam first attacked Ramesh, thinking he was under the influence of alcohol and hence not in his senses.
A case of murder has been registered against Shyam.
