The Bishrampur police station officer-in-charge Ghuma Kisku said, “The old man has confessed to killing his son by thrashing him with a stick when Sakendra was beating his physically challenged mother Draupdi Devi. We forwarded him to jail on Monday.”
“My son was abusing my wife in a highly inebriated state of mind. I tried to persuade him not to do so but he did not listen. Then, I hit him with a stick to frighten him. It struck him on the head and he fell on the ground and died on the spot,” Maheshwar told the police,
According to villagers, the deceased regularly used to beat up family members after getting drunk.
