The Inside Story

Personal Assistant to Vice Chancellor Arrested for Killing Mother and Brother in Mumbai

Gopal Krishnan, the personal assistant cum stenographer to the vice chancellor of the Mumbai university, was arrested on Friday night for killing his mentally challenged brother Jairam and bed-ridden mother Radha. The incident came to light on Tuesday evening when Gopal returned home from work. His neighbour discovered Gopal sitting in a corner, while the bodies of his brother and mother were lying inside. Gopal did not say anything to the neighbour, and the police were informed about the murders.

The bodies were sent for post-mortem, and reports revealed that Radha was strangulated, and Jairam died of severe head injuries. A senior police officer said that Gopal was their prime suspect, and after thorough interrogation, he confessed that he killed the two as he had been very frustrated with their behavior. Gopal's father had died in 2006, and since then, he had been taking care of his mentally challenged brother and ailing mother.

Gopal told police officials that his brother regularly quarreled with him for no reason. His mother always supported Jairam and kept telling him that the house did not belong to him. On Tuesday morning, while Gopal was cooking, Jairam spilled some floral waste in the wheat flour, which ledto a quarrel between the two. In an infuriated state, Gopal smashed Jairam's head with an iron rod, then brought out a stone kept in the bathroom and again attacked his brother with it. Radha then started cursing Gopal, and he strangulated her. Gopal also told officials that he could not get married as all girls rejected him when they came to know about his mentally challenged brother and ailing mother.
