A man allegedly shot dead his mother after she denied him the money to buy drugs while the police claim both were drug addicts.
Both the prime accused and his mother were into drugs and ice addicts, police claimed as they probed the murder case.
According to the police, prime accused Ahmed demanded money from his mother but he shot her when she didn’t serve up.
