Son kills mother for liquor money

A 29-year-old youth killed his mother Belliyamma after she refused to give him money to buy alcohol in Sivuni Kuppam in Chittoor district on Monday.

After failing to get money to buy alcohol he tied a blanket around her neck while she was sleeping and killed her but the incident came out only after Bellamma’s daughter visited the house on Tuesday morning.

Bellamma has two sons and a daughter and owns 1.5 acres of agriculture land. Last month she had given Rs 50,000 to her younger son to buy an autorickshaw which infuriated Subramanyam and pestered her for money and registration of the property in his name.
