The deceased Parvathi Naika (47) had initially been admitted to Kundapura hospital for treatment and was later shifted to Wenlock Hospital in Mangaluru where she died on September 22.
The complainant, Srimathi Naika (30) alleged that her brother Krishna Naika, a resident of Halady village would often physically assault their mother.

Police are probing the case.
