Kottayam: The younger son of a couple from Manganam, who went missing in the city, has been found dead in their house.
KSEB retired assistant executive engineer Puthukkat PC Abraham's son Tincy Itti Abraham (37) was found hanging in a bedroom in the upper storey of their house. The tragedy struck when Tincy's wife's second cesarean was to happen on Thursday.
Tincy had returned home after seeing his wife Bency who has been admitted to a private hospital in Manganam. He left for the hospital again at 12.30 pm. He returned home at 5 pm but was not available on phone despite repeated attempts to contact him, prompting Bency to inform Tincy's elder brother Shincy.
Shincy reached home and when there was no response from inside, he informed East police. A police team led by DYSP Sakarya Mathew and CI Saji Varghese broke the kitchen door and entered the house. They found Tincy hanging in the bedroom.
Initial enquiry has not thrown up anything unnatural in his death and no suicide note was found, the police said. Police are suspecting that the mental agony that Tincy was suffering since his parents went missing might have forced him to take this drastic step.
In the past few days, the police had obtained information from Tincy after PC Abraham and Thankamma went missing. Though police have collected all the incoming and outgoing call details of the missing couple and their children, they were unable to find any leads in the case. The police believe that the couple might have left the home after some unexpected provocation.
Tincy's inquest proceedings are being carried out. Tincy used to run a mobile phone shop. There were no financial issues in their home, say cops.
