A 22-year-old man, a resident of Kadirenahalli in Banashankari, had put his phone for charging on Monday night. His grandmother, Lakshmamma, who had poor eyesight, dropped the phone by mistake. The phone screen was shattered in the fall.
Angered by this, the accused Shivaraj, in a fit of rage hit her with a wooden plank on her neck. Other family members soon rushed to her aide and put the elderly woman to bed after giving her first-aid.
However, on Tuesday morning family members found her unresponsive and rushed her to a nearby hospital where she was declared brought dead.
The police have registered a case and have arrested the grandson. The body has been sent for postmortem.
