In a bizarre case of barbarity, a young man killed his father for not giving him his daily money for booze.
It is learnt that when 55-year-old Baijnath, a resident of Mandiyon, refused to give money to his son Santosh Gupta, the latter went wild.
He took off his father's clothes and whipped him mercilessly. His father shrieked in pain but the son remained unmoved. Later he picked up a chopper and killed his father.
After committing such a ruthless crime, Santosh started weeping. He walked up to the police station in blood-soaked clothes. Seeing him, the policemen thought that the youth had probably been attacked. When the station house officer Abhimanyu Dwedi came to know that Santosh had killed his own father with a chopper, he went to his house and found him lying in a pool of blood.
The younger sister of Santosh, Urmila, was taking bath when Bajnath was killed. When she came out she saw Santosh attacking his father. She has testified to the fact that her brother killed their father. On previous occasions too Santosh had beaten his father several times. He is in police custody right now.
