Jaipur: A 30-year-old unemployed man killed his mother and younger brother in Rajasthan’s Ajmer town Friday after they refused to lend him money, police said.
The man, identified as Kishan Kumar, lived with his widowed mother, Gyarashi Devi, and younger brother Rajendra in Palbisla area of the town, some 150 km from here.
“The widow was living on her husband’s pension. As Kishan was unemployed, he used to quarrel with his younger brother and the mother for money. The regular fights turned violent Thursday night,” said a police officer.
“When Gyarashi Devi refused to lend him money, Kishan attacked her and Rajendra in their sleep with a sharp-edged weapon in the wee hours of Friday. To ensure they were dead, he beat the bodies with an iron rod.”
Kishan escaped from the house after the attack.
“The neighbours informed the police early Friday morning. Kishan was traced and placed under custody. He has been booked under section 320 of Indian Penal Code for homicide,” said the officer.
