Hyderabad: In a shocking incident, an octogenarian was killed by his son and the body was chopped into pieces which were kept in a bucket in the house for three days before the police got wind of it. The incident happened at Malkajgiri in the city.
The victim, M Kishan, 80, a retired employee of South Central Railways lived along with his wife, son and daughter at their house in RTC Colony in Malkajgiri. His elder son and another daughter were not staying with them.
Three days ago, M Kishan reportedly came home and picked up a quarrel with his wife and children. His younger son, also named Kishan, 30, pushed his father following which he fell on the ground.
“Kishan pounced on his father and killed him with a knife. Later, he cut the body into six parts and put it in a bucket in the toilet before escaping from the place. The incident took place on August 16 evening,” said ACP Malkajgiri, G Sundeep.
After Kishan fled, his mother and sister remained silent about the killing and did not inform anyone.
On Sunday, when the foul smell started emanating from the house, neighbours informed the Malkajgiri police. On inspection, to their shock, the police discovered the pieces of the body in the bucket.
“The women said they kept quiet as Kishan had threatened them. We are suspecting their role also and will question them,” said the ACP.
The police during preliminary enquiries revealed that M Kishan used to pick up a quarrel with the family members and it could have been a reason for his being killed so brutally.
The police registered a case under Section 302 of IPC and took up investigation. The police formed special teams to nab the accused. The body parts were shifted to Gandhi Hospital mortuary where an examination will be done on Monday.
Senior police officials visited the scene of offence and are supervising the investigation.
