KOTTAYAM: A 53-year-old woman killed her 11-year-old nephew so that her brother - the victim's father - could remarry after getting a divorce from his estranged wife, police said on Tuesday.
After strangulating Rahul N Shaji to death around 1am, Vijayamma rang up the police to report the crime. She was soon arrested.
Investigators, who reached the scene at Kaippuzha near here on receiving the call, found Rahul's body on a cot. His paternal grandparents were seen weeping next to the body, while Vijayamma sat in the bedroom, calm and composed, police said.
The accused reportedly told the police she had used the string of her churidar to strangulate the boy, who was sleeping with her. The boy's grandmother, who was also sleeping in the same room, was unaware of the murder taking place.
Vijayamma was affectionate to the boy and others had no inkling that she would commit such a heinous crime.
Police said the woman killed Rahul so that her brother Shaji could lead a better life after divorcing his wife, Bindu. "Shaji had filed a divorce petition and Bindu has been opposed to it. The accused told us that the boy was an impediment to Shaji getting a divorce, and hence, killed him," circle inspector Rejo P Joseph said.
Vijayamma had facilitated Shaji's marriage with Bindu, and had been feeling guilty ever since their marriage hit the rocks, police said.
Police said Shaji, employed in Dubai, would be reaching home late on Tuesday. Bindu, a staff nurse at the Medical College Hospital here, has been staying in a working women's hostel in Gandhi Nagar. She has been living separately for the past six years.
Vijayamma, previously a nurse at a Mumbai hospital, was staying in Virar with her husband K V Raju, a retired railway employee, and three sons. She reached Kaippuzha from Mumbai around 5.30pm on Monday, police said, adding it wasn't known if the murder was a planned one.
Rahul was staying with Shaji's parents Raghavan and Kamalakshi ever since he returned from Dubai, where he had been staying, in 2011.
The boy was a class IV student of Mar Makil Public School in Kaippuzha. The school dispersed for the day after receiving the news of Rahul's death. "Rahul was the class topper. He was obedient and never created any trouble for us," one of his teachers said, requesting anonymity.
The boy's body has been kept in a morgue. He will be laid to rest after Shaji's arrival.
