Man ‘kills’ father to secure PSU job on compassionate grounds in Telangana: Police

Karimnagar (Telangana):To secure a job on compassionate grounds, a man allegedly killed his 55-year old
father, a PSU worker, with his mother and younger brother being part of the plot and sought to project it as a death due
to heart attack in a village in Telangana, police said.
The 25-year old man, a polytechnic diploma holder,
strangulated his father to death using a towel on May 26 while
the latter was asleep in their house in Kothur village in
neighbouring Peddapalli district.
Police said they have arrested the two sons while their
mother was absconding. They also seized two mobile phones and
the towel, used in the crime.
The trio had plotted the killing to get a job on
compassionate ground for the elder son of the deceased, who
was a pump operator in the state-run Singareni Collieries
Limited at Godavarikhani in Peddapalli district.
After the elder son killed his father, the next day
morning the family informed others that he died of a heart
attack and prepared for the funeral.
As some people raised doubts over it, he was forced to
inform police following which they sent the body for post-
mortem and launched an investigation.
Police found the man carried out the killing after his
mother and younger brother accepted his proposal.
“In order to get the job of his father in Singareni
Collieries, the man ended the life of his father,” Ramagundam
Police Commissioner V Satyanarayana said on Saturday.
A case has been registered against the three under the
Indian Penal Code sections 302 (murder), 120-B (conspiracy),
201 (giving false information) and 34 (acts done by several
persons in furtherance of common intention).
The profit-making Singareni Collieries Company Limited
(SCCL), a coal mining firm jointly owned by the Telangana and
the central governments, offers employment to a dependent of
its employee who dies while in service.
