In a shocking crime, police have traced back the murder of a young man to have been carried out at the insistence of his mother.

The family initially reported the boy to be missing on May 20 but the police was able to trace the body near a tube well in Narhaida village in Brahmapuri area on May 21.
It turned out in the post-mortem that Mukesh had been strangled and thus murder case was registered.
Local police initially was unable to ascertain the reason for the crime and thus decided to rope in crime branch’s surveillance cell.
It was then that it emerged that Mukesh used to pick fights with his mother Usha over the latter’s affair with Naushad.
This made Usha decide to get rid of her son and asked Naushad to make a plan, as per police.
