Nalgonda: An alcoholic man in a fit of rage killed his seven-year-old son when his wife refused to stay with him. The incident took place at Kompelly village of Thiruamalagiri mandal in Nalgonda district in the wee hours of Monday.

According to police, B Ravi, a daily wage labourer and native of Kompelly, was addicted to liquor. Vexed with Ravi’s behaviour, his wife Nagamani along with their son, B Sai, left for her mother’s house located in the same village one week ago. On Sunday, Ravi in inebriated condition went to his in-laws house and requested Nagamani to return home, to which she refused.
