Man arrested for murdering father

A man who was absconding after murdering his father was nabbed by the police from a hideout near Tambaram. B. Rangasamy, a mason, was stabbed by his son Shankar (35) at his home in Perungalathur.

The police said, “Rangasamy had two wives and seven children. He had two boys and a girl from his first wife Lakshmi and three boys and a girl from his second wife Parvathy.

But for the past 30 years, he has been living with Parvathy. Shankar, his eldest son, born to Lakshmi, had allegedly been nursing a grudge against Rangasamy for having two wives, and not living with his mother, his first wife.”

Rangasamy was sleeping outside his house when Shankar allegedly committed the crime and fled the scene. Neighbours rushed Rangasamy to the Government Hospital in Chromepet where he was declared brought dead.

A case has been registered and a search was launched to nab Shankar. Following intense search, the police arrested him from a hideout at Tambaram.
