A 50-year-old tribal woman was beaten to death by her son near Thane as she refused to give him money for buying liquor, police said on Saturday.

The accused, Shantaram Kakdya Wagh, a resident of Kakdyachiwadi village under Jahwar taluka, is absconding after committing the crime since Friday afternoon, Assistant Police Inspector K N Avchar said.

The 28-year-old, a habitual drinker, would often ask for money from his mother Sakrubai Wagh to buy alcohol and harass her if she did not oblige, he said. On Friday, she refused to provide him money.

Enraged over this, Shantaram kicked her several times and beat her blue and black with a stick, leading to her death instantly, Avchar said. He fled from the house and a search is on for him, police said, adding a murder case has been registered against Shantaram.
