Retired Nagpur woman medico murdered in cold blood by kin

Nagpur, Nov 30 (IANS): A retired Nagpur medical professional's refusal to fund her grandson's studies in the US led to her cold-blooded killing at his hands, police said.

The 22-year-old has been arrested for allegedly murdering his grandmother in her room early on Saturday, and sent to police custody.

Police said Dr Devkabai Panchbhai 78, who retired from the Government Medical College, was staying with her sick husband on the ground floor of their residence, while their daughter and son-in-law and their son Nitesh on the upper floor.

The son-in-law had gone for a morning walk and on his return, found her lying in a pool of blood.

While Nitesh remained mum, investigation led to discovery of his involvement, and on questioning, he confessed to the crime, police said. He had gagged her with some cloth and then applied sticking tape to prevent her from raising an alarm before stabbing her with a knife.

    How can he imagine to have a successful career by murdering an old innocent woman. He is unfit to be called a human being . He should be hanged till death.

    Gruesome and cowardly to kill own grandmother for refusing his demand for funds to study abroad! To what level can a human being stoop to? Now he can rot for the rest of his life, unless he gets capital punishment which he deserves. May the Almighty grant the grandmother eternal peace!
