Kerala police have arrested the son of the late Kerala Ranji trophy player, K Jayamohan Thampi who was found dead at his residence in Thiruvananthapuram last week. Jayamohan was 64 and his body was found in a decomposed state by the local police after the tenants sensed that the body smell was coming from his residence in Manacaud.
Jayamohan’s son Ashwin is arrested by the police, who think that he could be involved in the case. The police have invoked section 302 of IPC of murder against Ashwin. Ashwin, who could be the culprit, will be presented in front of the court on Wednesday.
K Jayamohan Thampi played six first-class games
Police grew suspicious against Ashwin after the autopsy report suggested K Jayamohan Thampi died after a serious head injury. The father suffered the injury after he was involved in a drunken tussle with his son. The report also revealed that the body was found after 36 hours of death.
The police revealed that the Father-Son had a habit of drinking together and when Ashwin wanted to withdraw money from his father’s debit card to buy more liquor, it led to a ferocious brawl between the two.
“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,” an officer investigating the case was quoted as saying by Times of India.
“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.
K Jayamoham Thampi was a wicket-keeper batsman, who played six first-class matches for his state between 1979 and 1983.
