A 30-year-old man sent personnel of a police station in Pudukkottai district into a tizzy when he walked in with the severed head of his mother after allegedly killing her on March 18, police said.

They said Anand was having frequent quarrels with his mother Rani, a widow, over a property dispute.

After an argument over the issue on March 18 morning in their house, he allegedly beheaded her with a sharp weapon, carried it all the way to the Karambakudi police station and surrendered, the police said.

The slain woman was acquitted in a case relating to the murder of her husband 10 years ago, they added. The police said Anand was arrested.
