Man thrashes son to death over his drunken behaviour in Thrissur
Palakkad: In a gruesome incident, a youth was killed when his father thrashed him to death at Wadakancherry in Palakkad. Basil, 36, son of Mathai, is the deceased and the incident happened on Tuesday night at 10.30.
Basil was a nurse in Israel and quit his job to come back to his native land. As Basil was a drunkard, family disputes were a regular affair during nights. On the fateful day when Basil returned home drunk, a verbal spat erupted and the disgruntled father hit him on his head with an iron pipe.
Mathai informed the neighbours about the death of his son only after 3 hours. The neighbour who reached the house saw Basil in a pool of blood and immediately informed the matter to the police. Police said Basil died at about 10 ‘o clock itself. Mathai, 58, was arrested by the police.
Mathai is running a provisions store in Thrissur and his wife Saramma is bed ridden.
