Kilimanoor: An inebriated man, in a fit of rage, killed his father over an argument over opening the door of their house. The deceased has been identified as Rajan (65), a native of Panappamkunnu, Thiruvananthapuram.

The incident took place around midnight on Wednesday. The police have arrested Rajan’s son Rajesh aka Suraj (28) in connection with the murder. As per reports, the duo got into an argument after Rajan delayed opening the door of the house.
