An unemployed alcoholic man demanded money to buy alcohol from his mother. And when she refused to give him any, the son stabbed the woman to death. Not stopping at this, he cut out her intestines and her heart and apparently ate the latter after seasoning it with pepper and chutney.

Sunil Kuchakurni, 35, went to visit his mother Yelava, 65, at her home in Mahawala Vasant, in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, in India. He asked for cash, and became angry when his mother said ‘no’. He suddenly got a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her. What he did after this was ghastly – and that’s an understatement. Neighbours reportedly saw him walking out of the house with blood dripping from his hands approximately an hour after they heard screams and informed the police.

Police arrested him later that day. Senior Inspector Sanjay More, from Shahupuri Police Station, in Kolhapur, was quoted as saying in the report that: “He was unemployed and surviving on his mother’s pension. He’s an alcoholic and often stole money from his mother. His wife and three children moved to Mumbai. His mother was fed up with him and refused to give him more money. Suddenly, in a fit of rage, he gagged her and then stabbed her to death. Later, he took out her heart and placed it on a plate.”

“Some parts of her stomach and her heart were extracted and found next to the body along with pepper and chutney when we reached the scene of the crime,” he added. “We suspect he must have eaten some of the organs but it will only be confirmed after the medical reports are back,” the report quoted him as saying.
