Agartala: In a shocking incident, a 65-year-old lady was killed by her son on Monday.
Tripura Police arrested the accused, Raju Debnath (30) from his residence in Dharmanagar under North Tripura district for killing his mother. Police said prima facie evidence suggests that 65-year-old Shanti Debnath, who used to stay with the accused son, was brutally assaulted.
The injuries she suffered on her head led to excessive bleeding and eventually, she lost her life. The accused confessed his crime during the police interrogation. According to available information, on Monday morning, a casual staff of Tripura State Electricity Corporation Limited went to the deceased’s house to check the electricity meter reading. As he reached there, he could sense a foul smell pervading the whole house.
He also noticed some blood stains which prompted him to raise the alarm and make others aware of the situation. Soon the police were informed.
