Passers-by informed police about the car, in which the body was lying, covered in a blanket and a pillow. Police said that Sukhram was also hit in the head before being shot.
A forensic team collected the required samples from the car and the body was sent for post-mortem examination on Sunday.
“Sukhram’s younger son had died a few years ago. Since then, he has been living with his wife Kusum, daughter Rita and son-in-law Mohit in the city’s Kankarkhera area. His elder son Rohit used to think that his father will give away all his property to his daughter,” said SHO of Kankerkhera, Tapeshwar Pal.
According to the family of the deceased, Rohit’s “bad habits and poor temperament” had forced his parents to live with their daughter.
But on Saturday, Rohit went to meet his father after a long time. Seeing a change in his behaviour, his parents thought that Rohit had changed for the better, a family member said.
“Then he urged his father to accompany him to meet his other sister. Sukhram agreed. But it turned out to be his last ride,” a police officer said.
“An FIR of murder was filed against Rohit, who is also a father of two children. Another relative, Devendra, has also been named in the FIR. Raids are being made to nab the two accused who are on the run,” said the SHO.
