Son kills 55-year-old father for harassing mother in Raichur village

Raichur, Nov 6 (IANS): In a shocking incident, a son killed his father for torturing his mother in Raichur district of Karnataka, said police on Monday.

The accused was identified as 32-year-old Sheelavanta, a resident of Devarabhoopura village. and the victim was 55-year-old Bandi Timmanna.

Police stated that accused Sheelavantha had bludgeoned his father to death with a stone. Though he attempted to dispose of the body, later changed his mind and informed police about his act and got arrested.

The deceased Bandi Thimanna and his wife lived with son Sheelavanta’s family. He had two children. Bandi Thimmanna tortured his wife all the time and even after being warned by Sheelavanta many times, continued to harass the accused’s mother.

On Sunday an argument broke out between the father and son over the matter. In a fit of rage, the accused first asked his younger son to go to the room, then he took a big stone and smashed his father’s head. Attempts of his wife to stop him failed.

The accused’s mother had told police that her deceased husband would torture her every day and her son had done this in a fit of rage after not being able to see his mother being harassed. The police have taken up further investigation.

    @Rita; if you believe in the son's statement for you think that his parents marriage would have lasted this long? Another thing is there are many women who by birth are dominating fighter cocks making the life of the man miserable 😣! IMHO, there definitely could be another angle to the story, namely property and money! That's why I repeatedly say that when a second person gains entry into the "inner circle of a couple"; and that person along with his wife to fulfill his personal interests is bound to pour fuel in the fire and make the situation worse! You might have heard our elders saying: never ever stay with your married children or settle down in the in-laws (wife's parents place); better have your own independent one room hut and live by yourself peacefully 😜!! FYI, two men committ suicide for every one woman in this country due to marital discord, unbelievable but true!

    Sad event.Of course when father harasses mother almost everyday ,some offsprings cant tolerate that.He must have done when no more to tolerate it.Some men thinks mostly from old generation illeterates after having a peg ,simply beat and make radau.Of course I wouldnt tolerate with all patience ,one day might burstout .But to kill father is another number.Hope he gets mild sentence.Afterall he is looking after his parents.May the soul of deceased one rest in peace.

    One party just to remain in power has spread so much hatred , now nobody can control it. Every person you meet linked to that party is full of hatred. Never seen a beautiful loving country slip to hatred.

    This is the result of third party entry into a marital relationship, problems (ups and downs) always come, which should be sorted out amicably between the couple! So many such incidents occur because of excessive interference by the in-laws in the day to day affairs of their children, especially the lady's parents!
