In a shocking incident, a couple in Telangana’s Khammam hired killers to get their only son killed. Why? They were fed up with the harassment from their alcoholic, unemployed son. So, the government school principal and his wife allegedly hired killers and paid them Rs 8 lakh to do the job.
Kshatriya Ram Singh and Rani Bai were arrested on Monday and remanded in judicial custody along with four of the five alleged killers for the murder. One of the alleged killers is absconding.
How were they caught?
Their 26-year-old son Sai Ram, a college dropout, was strangled to death. His body was found dumped in Musi in Suryapet on October 18 and found a day later.
CCTV footage which showed the family car used in the crime led the police to the couple, who never lodged a missing complaint. The parents were later found to have used the same vehicle to go to the mortuary to identify their son’s body on October 25.

Why did they get him killed?
Ram Singh is the principal of a government gurukul in Maripeda Bangla village, and the couple’s daughter is settled in the US. Police said Sai Ram used to abuse and beat up his parents when they refused money for alcohol. Family members said they had sent him to a rehabilitation centre in Hyderabad, but it didn’t help.
How did they carry out the murder?
Huzurabad circle inspector Rama Linga Reddy said that the couple sought help from Rani Bai’s brother Satyanarayana to have their son killed. Satyanarayana involved R Ravi, D Dharma, P Nagaraju, D Sai, and B Rambabu to carry out the act.
The couple paid Rs 1.5 lakh in advance and agreed to give the balance of Rs 6.5 lakh three days after the murder, the police said.
On October 18, the alleged accused, Satyanarayana and Ravi, took Sai Ram in the family car to a temple in Kallepalli and met the other accused. “All had liquor, and after Sai Ram got drunk, he was strangled with a rope,” inspector Reddy said.
The inspector said the couple spilled the story during interrogation.
