A 23-year-old man in an inebriated state allegedly killed his 70-year-old mother following an argument. He has been arrested. The incident happened in East Delhi's Pandav Nagar area, the police said today.

During investigation, it was revealed that the woman's elder son, Mohit Vashisht, had come to the house late in the night in an inebriated state and had an argument with his mother.
