“The father and son had a habit of regularly consuming alcohol together at home. On Saturday too, they consumed liquor. Aswin, who possessed Jayamohan Thampi’s debit card, wanted to withdraw money from the ATM to buy more liquor, which Thampi refused. This made way for a brawl between them,” the officer was quoted as saying by TOI.
“They brawled on the verandah of the house, where Thampi slipped and fell, banging his face against the floor. He lay there for some time until his son came back and dragged his body back inside the house. Then, he continued to consume liquor until he passed out,” he added.
