Mumbai: In a shocking case of crime, a 45-year-old man murdered his mother after she told him to get his act together if he wanted to stay with his wife and two kids. The man fled the scene after committing the heinous act and it was his wife who found the dead body.

Naresh Mahali, a resident of Vasai, is unemployed and would drink, abuse and assault his wife every day. On November 10, a drunken Mahali entered the house in the afternoon and again started abusing and beating up his wife. Fed up of this, the woman took her two kids and went to her sister’s home. According to a senior police official, the wife left the place fearing that he would beat her up again once he came back in the evening, reported Mid-Day.

According to the cops, that night, Mahali’s 70-year-old mother, Sitabai Mahali, confronted him and told him to change his ways.
