A man allegedly stabbed his mother to death and then ate part of her heart after smothering it in chutney – because she refused to give him food.
Sunil Kuchakurni had reportedly gone to his neighbour’s house while drunk, and started asking for something to eat.
But when they denied him a meal, he went to his 65-year-old mum Yelava’s home in northern India instead.
The pair allegedly started to fight during which Sunil flew into a fit of rage.
He reportedly then stabbed his mother and cut out her heart.
According to police, he is believed to have later eaten part of her heart – seasoning it with chilli, pepper and chutney.
Sanjay More, senior inspector of Shahupuri police, said: ‘After entering the house, he started fighting with his mother.

‘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.
‘We found chutney and pepper spray at his house, which he had sprinkled on the heart. We suspect he ate a part of it.’
Kuchakurni was reportedly later seen walking out of the house with blood smothered all over his hands.
He is married and is based in Mumbai with his wife and their three children.
The exact charges he is facing are not known.
More added: ‘He has been arrested and further investigation into the matter is on.’
