Police detain two men for murder of 65-yr-old woman in Chhawla
New Delhi: It was 9:30 am on Saturday when Hemant Kumar left for work, leaving his elderly mother home, with a hope that he will see her in the evening but his life turned upside down when he found his mother lying in a pool of blood in their house situated in south east Delhi.
Police sources claimed that they have detained two suspects in the murder case.
Talking to Millennium Post, Kumar said that the last words his mother said to him before leaving for work was to take care and eat the lunch on time.
"I never thought it will be our last conversation I was shocked when I saw her lying dead when I returned home," said the 26-year-old son.
A resident of Chhawla in south west Delhi, the deceased identified as Basanti, lived with her son and was 65-year-old.
Both mother-son were living happily together and son used to cook food for her mother.
Revealing the fateful evening of Saturday, Kumar said that he came back home from his work around 8:45 pm, and found the door unlocked. When he pushed it open and entered the house, he turned to the room on his left where he saw his mother lying in blood and her throat slit with a knife which was also lying nearby.
"My life turned upside down. The person whom I loved the most was not with me. After seeing her lying dead, I lost all my senses. Later I made a PCR call," said the son.
He added that her hair was open and the face turned black. The cot wood was also found broken.
When asked if he had any fight with anyone he stated that around one and half month ago, they have asked their relative to leave the house after arguments.
"One of our relative was living with us for few months as he was working as a security guard but later he left his job and started smoking," said Hemant.
Seeing his new addiction, the woman told him to search for a new job but he did not pay any heed. There were also arguments between the mother and the relative after which he was asked him to leave.
According to police sources, they have detained suspects in the case who might be involved in the murder. "We are probing the case from all angles," said a police official, adding that the case was registered under section 302 of IPC and are waiting for the postmortem report.
