KARWAR: Furious that he was given a bland curry for lunch, a 24-year-old man shot dead his mother and younger sister with an unlicensed gun when they were taking nap at their house in Uttara Kannada district on Thursday afternoon.

Police have arrested Manjunath Haslar on charges of murder. The twin murders came to light when his father Narayan returned home in the night to find his wife Parvathi, 42, and daughter Ramya, 19, in a pool of blood in their house in Kudegod village, Siddapur taluk.

Sources said Manjunath, said to be an alcoholic, allegedly picked a fight with his mother over quality of sambar, saying the ingredients were raw. He opposed her plan to borrow money to buy a cellphone for Ramya, but she said she would still go ahead. The twin issues angered Manjunath, who shot his mother and sister with a country-made gun, which he had illegally procured to chase away wild animals in the family farm.
