A woman in Gujarat's Amreli district allegedly killed her 30-year-old son after he harassed his mentally unwell sister, informed the police.
The mother, Dudhiben along with her neighbour thrashed his son, Savji Shiyal with a stick, said a Pipavav marine police station official.
"Shiyal, a father of four, was harassing his 22-year-old mentally unwell sister. Dudhiben called her neighbour Munna to calm down Shiyal. However, when all efforts failed, the two hit him with a stick. After he died, they left his corpse at home and absconded," said Savarkundla Deputy Superintendent of Police KJ Chaudhary.
Based on a complaint by Shiyal's wife, Dudhiben and Munna have been charged with murder and efforts were on to track them down, he added.
