An altercation took place when Pathak, who worked as a driver in Noida found his mother and Ajeet in an objectionable position when he reached home after duty on Saturday night, the officer said.
The argument turned violent and the woman and her live-in partner hit Pathak on the head with a brick, resulting in his death, he added.
Later, Ajeet called up ambulance service. When the ambulance driver reached the spot, he saw Pathak lying in a pool of blood following which he informed police, the officer said.
The woman, however, managed to take Pathak's body to her daughter's house in Azadpur for cremation.
Her daughter suspected foul play and forced her to return with the body to New Ashok Vihar.
When the woman returned, she was nabbed by police, he said, adding her live-in partner has also been arrested.
