meerut: Meerut: 70-year-old stabbed 23 times by son after tiff over money | Meerut News – Times of India


MEERUT: A 70-year-old man was beaten, stripped and stabbed at least 23 times allegedly by his younger son for refusing to part with a share in Rs 15 lakh he had recently received after selling a parcel of land on the outskirts of Meerut.
Angry with his two sons, Vijay Pal Chaudhary had refused to give them the money. His mutilated body was on Monday morning recovered from the terrace of the house he shared with his sons and a daughter-in-law in Daurala area.
Chaudhary’s severed hand and leg were also found near his body, police said. The brutality of the crime shocked the region and prompted police to form a team to crack the case.
Police initially detained and questioned Chaudhary’s both sons.
“The younger son broke down during interrogation and accepted his crime,” said Charan Singh Sirohi, head constable privy to the investigation.
“Initially, the accused, Abhishant, said that some thieves had barged into the house on Sunday night and that he fell unconscious while resisting them. He also said that when he got up, he saw his father’s body in a pool of blood,” Sirohi said.
“It was difficult to believe what he was saying. Then some relatives told us about the land deal of Rs 15 lakh. After the deal, he had a tiff with his two sons over sharing of the money,” the policeman added.
Abhishant has been booked for murder.
