Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police on Thursday detained two minor boys for allegedly brutally killing their mother in an apartment at Sundarpada area under Airfield police limits here.
Police told the media that the two boys aged 15 and 12 years were staying with their mother Binodini Mishra at Orchid Apartment in Old Town area. During interrogation, the duo said that their mother used to beat them up every day under the influence of liquor.
