PUDUCHERRY: Principal Sessions Judge M. Chinnapandi has sentenced a man belonging to Nehru Nagar in Madukarai to life imprisonment for killing his 60-year-old mother in a fit of rage. The prosecution case was that in September 2005, Adhinarayanan (40) had been pestering his mother for money for consuming alcohol.
At that time, his sister Lakshmi interfered and told him not to demand money. This led to an argument. In the melee, his mother, Kasiammal, was pushed down by Adhinarayanan, who also hit her with a stick. She died on the spot. Mr. Chinnapandi also imposed a fine of Rs 5,000 and in default a rigorous imprisonment of six months. — Staff Reporter
