Siddhant Ganore, 21-year-old son of a Mumbai policeman who has been accused of killing his mother, has been sent to judicial custody till June 16.

The police said the youngster admitted to his crime and they have completed their investigation in the case.

According to the Vakola police, Ganore stabbed his mother Dipali, 42, 12 times with a kitchen knife on May 23. He was traced within 48 hours after he bought a new mobile phone in Jodhpur and used it.

A police officer said, “Siddhant failed his first-year BSC exams, but did not tell his mother about it. He would come up with an excuse everytime she asked about the results. On Tuesday, they got into a heated argument over the results. In a fit of rage, Siddhant picked up a knife to stab himself, stabbed her instead.”

Police said he drew a chilling message with her blood: “Tired of her, catch me & hang me.”

He then changed, took Rs 2 lakh from home and left. He took a train from Santacruz railway station and reach Jodhpur, Rajasthan.

He was picked up from a local hotel and brought back to Mumbai on May 26.
