A man has allegedly beaten his 56-year-old father to death over a property dispute in Uttar Pradesh’s Phuli village.
According to the police, Shahmir Ansari (56) was thrashed with a stick by his son Azhar Ansari (25), who then fled the spot.
Dildarnagar Station House Officer (SHO) Kamlesh Pal said Shahmir was rushed to a hospital, where he died during treatment.
The incident was a fallout of a property dispute involving the deceased and his son, he said.
An FIR has been registered against Azhar and a hunt is on to nab him, the officer said, adding that the body of the deceased has been sent for post-mortem.
