We’ve seen many instances where a child ends up misbehaving with their parents, but a mother killing her own child is a rare happening. It would be a nightmare for any parent to lose their child. But this mother, killed how own son for something no one can ever guess. This sad tale came to light of people on Wednesday. Anwari Idrisi, s 45-year-old woman killed her own son by strangling him on Tuesday evening. She was arrested the following day, after which the whole world stood still.
According to Mankhurd police, Nadeem Naim, 25 lived with his mother, wife, two elder brothers and their wives in Ambedkar Chawl. Nadeem was married to an Allahabad woman two years ago. His wife was unaware of his addiction to drugs and alcohol. She left her in-laws’ house after 5 months being fed up of her husband’s beatings.
Anwari, on the other hand, did not want her daughter-in-law to leave. She convinced that Nadeem won’t repeat such behaviour and will even renounce drugs. Anwari also promised that if next time her son behaved as such, she will protect her from him. Daughter-in-law returned to her in-laws’ to Mankhurd.
“On Tuesday night, Nadeem came home in an inebriated state when the entire family was present. Anwari realised that Nadeem would become violent and ordered her sons and daughters-in-law to sleep in the neighbour’s house. Nadeem could not tolerate this and after everyone had left, he began beating his mother. She took the beating,’ said inspector Chandrakant Landge of Mankhurd police station.
Tired of his beatings, Anwari threw him towards steel ladder, tied her dupatta around his neck and strangled him to death. After he died, she sat next to his body and wept for entire night. In the morning, when Nadeem’s wife returned home, she saw her mother-in-law crying.
The event resembled eerily to the prominent Bollywood film Mother India. Anwari confessed that she killed Nadeem to save her daughter-in-law from the torture. She was arrested for murder under section 302 of IPC. Nadeem’s body has been sent for post-mortem.
