A 25-year-old Youth who brutally murdered them and his sister, who was to get married in a month’s time.
It is only after hearing cries of people, neighbours came out and the incident came to light.
Vellore: Tamilarasan parents’ opposition to his love affair with a dalit girl and their continuous demand for the return of the money that he had borrowed from them seems to have incensed their 25-year-old son who brutally murdered them and his sister, who was to get married in a month’s time.
The brutal incident came to light on Monday morning when the neighbours found Mohan (52), his wife Rajeshwari (45) and the daughter Suganya (23) lying in a pool of blood with their throats slit while the couple’s son Tamilarasan was lying on the floor with minor injuries.

Sources told that he had a stressed relationship with his parents for over a past few weeks as he did not return Rs 1.2 lakh he had borrowed from them on the pretext of affording it to his friends.
“The parents had been trying to return the money for the marriage of their daughter Suganya, which was to be held next month. And there were regular fights about his affair with the girl from a different community,” a source said.
Vellore District Police said the Tamilarasan has confessed to having killed his parents and the younger sister over the issue of money. “He says he killed them because they were annoying him to return the money. Since he is still in the hospital, we are not able to interrogate him at length,” a senior police officer said.
Investigators also said Tamilarasan is making contradictory statements about the motive of the killing and that a clear picture would arise only after he is taken into custody and interrogated for long.
Tamilarasan had first murdered his mother and younger sister on Monday morning and he tried killing his father when he returned home after his night shift. “He seems to have used of the kitchen knife to kill his father who fought for his life with his young son but in hopeless. In the process, Tamilarasan also suffered minor injuries,” another officer said.
