The Hush Post: A mother killed her 20-year-old son after she couldn’t take anymore the daily drunken brawls of her son. The incident took place in Gujarat’s Gandhidham.
Zarina Sheikh took the help of her elder son to strangulate the younger son to death. After executing, the duo made it look as if it were a case of suicide.
However, after the post-mortem the truth came out.
The culprit mother-son duo was arrested on Friday. The mother revealed that she couldn’t take her son’s drinking brawls at home anymore. As a result, she decided to get rid of him. She added that Arif, the deceased would come drunk every day. He would subsequently create nuisance in the locality and even steal from the house.
On Wednesday, the younger picked up a fight with another boy and when the mother intervened, he resorted to violence with her too. The agitated mother then grabbed his throat and choked it with a dupatta. Later, she along with her son and her brother hanged the victim from the hook of the house ceiling.
Later, they called the cops and told them that he had committed suicide.
However, the post-mortem revealed that the son had died due to strangulation. This led the police to suspect the involvement of the son’s family in the incident.
In yet another incident earlier on July 1, a woman allegedly killed her six-year-old son with a knife in Bathinda, Punjab. The accused allegedly attacked her only son with a dagger while giving him a bath at home in Bhai Mati Dass Nagar, said Bathinda Station House Officer (Civil Lines) Rashpal Singh.
