Baripada: In a heart-breaking incident, two siblings beat their mother to death at Satabhaya village under Bangiriposi police limits in Mayurbhanj district late Thursday night. Police arrested the accused brothers Friday morning. The deceased has been identified as Tulasi Singh.
Police said, Rabi and Rajkishore, the two sons of the deceased woman, returned home drunk Thursday night. Tulasi started abusing them for habitually coming home under the influence of alcohol.
