Awdesh Yadav, a resident of Barmashia under Dhansar police station, is on the run after allegedly killing his father Ramvilash Yadav on Friday night over a property dispute.

According to the FIR filed at the Dhansar police station, both Awdesh and his wife are on the run. The FIR was filed on the complaint of Akhilesh Yadav, the younger son of the deceased.

“The FIR was filed on Saturday on the complaint of the deceased’s younger son after we received post-mortem report,” said deputy superintendent of police (DSP) Mukesh Kumar.

According to the FIR, Awdesh, a driver by profession, had been demanding his share in the property that Ramvilash owned at his native place in Sheikhpura in Bihar. He also wanted the cattle to be divided so that he could live separately with his wife Sulekha Devi.

The dispute had been going on for the past three days. Late on Friday night, when Awdesh was drinking Ramvilash tried to stop him. Probably, sore over the incidents of the past three days, he hit Ramvilash on his head with an iron rod. Ramvilash died on the spot.

Dhansar police station-in-charge Yogendar Paswan said that the family had initially tried to hide the incident saying that Ramvilash died after being knocked down by a buffalo. However, the police came to know of the incident when neighbours called the police after hearing the screams of family members including the victim’s daughters and wife.

Police interrogation as well as post-mortem suggested that it was cold-blooded murder. The FIR by younger son confirmed the police view, said Paswan.

The deceased’s body has been handed over to the family and a police team has been sent to Bihar to trace the accused and his wife, added Paswan.
