Man killed by son over property dispute
Sunguvarchathram police have arrested a man for allegedly strangulating his father to death in a property dispute in Kancheepuram district.
The deceased M Jayaraman (58) had two wives and stayed with second wife Padma and son Vimal Raj, while his first wife Govindhammal and his two sons including the accused Vignesh stayed separately.
Police said Vignesh often quarrelled with Jayaraman demanding settlement of his assets and share in Rs 1.50 lakh he gets from the container parking lot.
On Friday evening, Vignesh took Jayaraman to the parking lot claiming to perform a puja. However, around 9 pm, he informed Vimal Raj that Jayaram died of injuries after falling on the road.
While Vignesh brought Jayaraman’s body to Padma’s residence, Vimal Raj found strangulation marks and picked up a quarrel with Vignesh after which the latter fled the spot after telling the crowd that he had murdered Jayaraman as he was not willing to give his share from his incomings.
On information, Sunguvarchathram police registered a case and arrested Vignesh on Sunday. He was remanded the same day and further investigation is on to find whether Vignesh’s elder brother Vivek is also involved in the murder.
