“We had a series of arguments over a land dispute for the past two years. Meanwhile, she threatened us with dire consequences if we did not allot her the disputed plot. But because, it was our plot personal, we rejected her demand. However, she took the benefits of our absence and strangulated my son to death. Consequently, she kept the dead body inside her house after packing it into a plastic bag,” the deceased’s father said in the FIR.
