The deceased has been identified as Kumudini Bhoi (45). The accused son, Rajesh Bhoi has been arrested by the police and will be forwarded to the court, informed Jharsuguda Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO), Nirmal Mahapatra on Tuesday.

As per reports, Rajesh, who is a daily wage labourer came back home after work with some eggs from the market. He asked his mother to make egg curry.

However, Kumudini refused to do so and told she will cook the curry some other day. This led to an altercation between the two.
Later, Rajesh, in a fit of rage, attacked her with a sharp weapon on her head and neck. Kumudini died on the spot.
