The incident happened in Jai Shri Colony of Sheopur. The accused, identified as Hemant Mittal, who works as a Patwari in the Revenue Department, was suspended two days ago for allegedly mishandling flood relief funds. He has been transferred from Baroda to Vijaypur Tehsil Office. His father is said to be mentally challenged. According to neighbors, Mittal and his wife would regularly beat the elderly man.
