Mangaluru: Body of woman found hanging; father accuses son of murder
Mangaluru, Jan 29: The body of an elderly woman was found hanging by a nylon rope at Karingana of Hosabettu gram near Moodbidri on Wednesday, January 28.
The deceased is identified as Lilly Goveas (60), wife of Paul Goveas.
Paul Goveas has lodged a complaint with the Moodbidri police that his wife was murdered by their estranged son Dolphy.
It is said that Paul and his other son Stany Goveas had gone to Attur St Lawrence feast in Karkala on Wednesday January 28. Paul had telephoned home at about 11 am and when nobody responded, he telephoned their neighbours and requested them to inquire.
When the neighbours came to find out, they found the body of the woman hanging by a nylon rope tied to the wooden beam of the roof.
Sources said that there was tension between Paul, their other son Dolphy Goveas and other family members for some time. Though there was a court order restraining him from coming home, it is said that he used to come every now and then and harass his parents.
A case has been registered and investigations are on, led by inspector Anantha Padmanabha.
