A 24-year-old man was sen­tenced to 16 years in prison for stab­bing his mother to death in Do­phuchen Ge­wog, Samtse. The in­ci­dent hap­pened in in March this year.

The con­vict con­fessed that he acted on an im­pulse of anger. The de­ceased had scolded her son, who, at that time was sleep­ing. She had asked her son to go to kitchen and light a fire in the tra­di­tional mud oven. The con­vict, be­fore the in­ci­dent, had bought a shank knife from a shop in­tend­ing to kill his mother.

The con­vict fled the scene af­ter the in­ci­dent and threw the knife be­low the road. How­ever, he was ar­rested on the same even­ing. Of­fi­cials from the ge­wog ad­min­is­tra­tion said the de­ceased died on the way to the Ba­sic Health Unit.
