A son in a fit of rage stabbed his mother to death in Bosepara village in Pandua last night.

Sukur Mallick, the son of Hazera Bibi, got in an altercation with his brother-inlaw Anwar Mallick on Monday night over the latter’s failure to return an amount of Rs. 500 given to him as loan.

In a fit of rage Sukur rushed with a chopper to attack his brother-in-law.

However, the mother Hazera Bibi intervened and snatched away the chopper from her son. But Sukur, not in his senses, snatched back the chopper and repeatedly stabbed his mother with it, inflicting very serious injuries.
