Ujjain: A man severely injured his father by slashing his throat in Ranabad village on Monday night. The injured has been identified as Gangaram (55), a farmer. Neelganga Police said that Gangaram was counting money with his younger son which he had got in a settlement, around 8 pm on Monday, after a bitter familial altercation over money. Gangaram’s elder son, Hatey Singh, was apparently irked at the previous altercations between him and father, to whom he asked for Rs 30000. As Gangaram refused to pay the money, he slashed his throat with a sharp blade. Police said that Hatey Singh, a habitual drinker, would get inebriated and hurl abuses at parents regularly. A police team intercepted the accused when he was trying to flee from the city, police sources said. A case was registered under Section 307 of IPC and the accused was taken on police remand.
