In a bizarre incident, a woman along with her son reportedly killed her husband, a former village sarpanch, over a family issue in Jaggaiahpalli, a hamlet of Malyala village in Kalwa Srirampur mandal on Tuesday night.

Sultanabad Circle Inspector T. Karunakar said that the accused, Sarojana, 42, along with her son, Arvind Reddy, 24, who had failed B.Tech was idle in the village. The deceased K. Sammi Reddy, 48, an agriculturist and former sarpanch, had reportedly abused his son for remaining idle without completing his education. Agitated over his remarks, the accused, Arvind Reddy, hit his father, Sammi Reddy, with a stone, causing injury to the left eyebrow.

When the victim was bleeding profusely, Sarojana, wife of Sammi Reddy, and son, Arvind Reddy, shifted him to another room and locked it. Though the victim was shouting for help and water, the accused did not provide water nor shifted him to hospital. Due to bleeding, the victim succumbed to injuries in his sleep.
