Hyderabad: A mother-son duo was allegedly murdered and the corpses were found dumped in a water drum inside their residence, the police said on Wednesday.
The woman identified as Sabnam and her son identified as Irfan, were found dead at their residence in the Vanasthalipuram police station limits. Investigators suspect that the husband is behind the wrongdoing.
