A 36-year-old man in Gujarat allegedly killed his ailing mother throwing her off the terrace of his building. Professor by profession, Sandip who hails from Rajkot of state Gujarat has been arrested in the alleged murder case three months after the death.
Earlier, police had registered a suicide case but an anonymous letter and CCTV footage of the building gave a new twist to the incident turning it into murder. Police says, “We found from the CCTV footage that Jayshreeben’s son was along with her when she jumped from the terrace and it’s not possible to commit suicide in the company of son. The role of the son has come under scanner”.
Three months after 64-year-old Jayshree’s death which was registered as a suicide, the city police received evidences of her murder by her own son. After reviewing video footage and pictures it seems like she was actually killed by her own.
The CCTV footage clearly showed that terminally ill Jayshree could barely climb one step of the terrace. In the footage, Sandip is seen holding her mother for support and she manages to climb with extreme difficulty. Sources say that Jayshree who was a retired schoolteacher had suffered a brain haemorrhage.
During initial interrogation, Sandip told the police that his mother had gone for sun salutation on the terrace and he was only there to help her, however, he broke down and confessed eventually that he was fed up of her prolonged poor health. Hence, he decided to kill by throwing her off the terrace.
