MKB Nagar Police on Tuesday arrested a father and son for the murder of their relative, using a cricket bat, in Vyasarpadi.
Police said Appunraj, 42, was a resident of Sanjay Nagar, Vyasarpadi. He was driving an autorickshaw to earn an income. He had married two women, and they were living in neighbouring houses in Sanjay Nagar. Following a quarrel, they left for their maternal homes.
On Monday evening, Appunraj who came in an inebriated condition, blamed his relatives — Velusamy and his son Raveeshwaran — for his wives leaving him. He picked a quarrel with them and attempted to attack the duo using a cricket bat. However, in retaliation, the duo snatched the bat from him and attacked him indiscriminately. Appunraj died on the spot and the duo surrendered to the police.
