Man kills son for refusing to beg

Ashok Nishad, 50, smothered his son Bhola Nishad to death on Friday at Thethwarpara village in Dongargarh, some 125 km from here. Ashok  was an alcoholic.

"Nishad was forcing his son for a few months to join him for begging so that he could get more cash daily for liquor," Vishwas Chandrakar, police station chief at Dongargarh, told IANS.

Bhola, who was studying in Class 4, was the only son of Ashok Nishad.

"Nishad has confessed to his crime. He is regretful. He said his son was lovable but he murdered him under the influence of alcohol," Chandrakar said.
