In a horrific incident that has surfaced from Hyderabad, a man allegedly killed his father, chopped his body into pieces and stuffed them into buckets, before absconding. The deceased was identified as 80-year-old Maruthi Kishan, a former railway employee. The accused, Kishan, was said to be unemployed.
The incident, which took place in RTC colony under the jurisdiction of the Moula Ali police, came to light after neighbours complained of a foul smell. After receiving the complaint, police visited the house where the buckets were found.
"Human remains were found in six to seven buckets. Two women were found in the house; a woman and her daughter. The woman said that her son, Kishan, had killed her husband and chopped him into several pieces with a knife, before stuffing the body parts in buckets and running away," ACP G Sundeep told reporters.
The CLUES team were called in to collect forensic evidence. Police said that a case has been registered under Section 302 (Murder) of the IPC, and a search has begun to nab the accused.
"The women said that the incident took place on August 16 and they did not approach the police as they feared for their lives. The family hails from Maharashtra and had settled in Hyderabad around 15 years ago," Sundeep said.
"There used to be frequent fights over financial matters between the father and son. We are investigating the case," he added.
In January 2018, a similar case had surfaced in Hyderabad, where a 32-year-old pregnant woman was killed and her body was dumped near Hyderabad's Botanical Gardens in Kondapur. Her body was found in two sacks.
After struggling to find clues initially, the police said that CCTV footage of two people on a bike led to a breakthrough in the case. The CCTV footage had shown two people riding on a bike, with the pillion rider carrying a heavy bag. The pillion rider was a woman, while a man was riding the vehicle.
