A 45-year-old woman and her son have been arrested by Soladevanahalli police for allegedly killing her adopted son.
The police suspected the role of family members and, the call records pointed a finger of suspicion at Zubina and Roshan.
Zubina and her younger son Roshan, 20, are accused of killing Basheer Ahmed, 37 — who had been adopted by Zubina’s husband after he found the orphan in his native village of Vijayapura two decades ago — and then dumping his body in Cauvery river in K.R.
On June 20, Zubina and Roshan allegedly bludgeoned Basheer, who was asleep, with a cricket bat.
The murder came to light when the father, Ilyas, a second-hand car dealer and a realtor, approached the police with a missing complaint.
