Professor throwing mother off terrace

Rajkot: A young man allegedly killed his sick mother in Rajkot by throwing her off the terrace of a building. Police have arrested the accused, who is a professor, in the alleged murder case three months after the death. Police had earlier registered a suicide case but an anonymous letter and CCTV footage of the building helped them to establish that it was murder and not suicide.
As believed earlier, Jayshreeben Vinodbhai Nathvani, died on September 27 by jumping off the terrace of her own building – Darshan Avenue in Gandhigram area – and died on the spot.
Police registered a suicide case and closed the file. Later, police got an anonymous letter suspecting this to be a case of murder and not suicide.
Police then checked CCTV footage of the building which showed that Jayshreeben, the victim mother, was unable to walk on her own as she was recently operated and sick. The footage showed her son Sandip providing her support to reach the terrace.
DCP Karanraj Vaghela said, “We found from the CCTV footage that Jayshreeben’s son was along with her when she jumped from the terrace and it’s not possible to commit suicide in the company of son. The role of the son has come under scanner.”
When police interrogated, Sandip said, “My mother was going for sun obeisance and I was helping her.” But according to police they found from the health records of the deceased that she was unable to walk by herself and it was not possible for her to jump from a 2.5-feet terrace ralling.
According to officials, when police interrogated the accused again, he broke down and said, “He was tired of poor health of his mother and he decided to kill her.”
