In a ghastly act, a labourer Jogi Bayanna throttled his physically challenged eldest son Ramanjaneyulu,10, in Yanadi Colony here on Wednesday night. He was caught by the local people while he was trying to dispose the body stuffed in a gunny bag on Thursday. They thrashed him and later handed him to the police.

According to police Ramanjaneyulu was totally disabled and could not speak also. He was sent to a home for physically challenged some time ago and was later kept with his grand mother, before being brought home, police said.

Bayanna, who often beat his physically challenged son, killed him in an inebriated condition after sending out his mother Jayamma and four-year-old brother.

Kadapa Urban Circle Inspector R. Sivanna inspected the house and sent the boy's body for post-mortem. A case was registered on a complaint by the boy's mother Jayamma.
