A 22-year-old man was arrested in the Indian state of Kerala for allegedly murdering his sister by mixing poison in her ice cream, police said on Thursday.
The police said the man wanted to “live alone” and so he allegedly mixed poison in the ice cream which his sister and parents consumed on August 4 night.
The police in their investigation revealed that the death of 16-year-old Ann Mary on August 5 at Balal in Kasaragod was a murder.
“We have recorded the arrest of her brother Albin who confessed that he had mixed poison in her ice cream,” police said.
The father, Benny was admitted to the hospital on August 5 morning along with his daughter, after complaining of uneasiness.
However, police said Albin’s mother was not hospitalised.
