Toddler’s body exhumed, mom held for murder in Karnataka | Bengaluru News – Times of India
HASSAN: A woman has been arrested for allegedly killing her child, whom she considered a hindrance to her affair with a man.
The incident took place at Hullenahalli village of Channarayapatna. The accused Suma, 24, and her husband Nanjappa had a son who was nearly two years old. As per Nanjappa’s complaint, Suma had a relationship with another man and used to meet him during her husband’s absence. But since the child was always with her, she considered him an obstacle. So she decided to eliminate the toddler.
On January 19, when Nanjappa had gone to the farm, Suma banged her son’s head against the wall. The child slipped into a coma. She called her husband and said he fell unconscious. They rushed him to hospital, but doctors declared him as brought dead, said DySP Lakshmegowdru.
However, Nanjappa, who had noticed a wound on his son’s head, began doubting his wife’s version. He complained to police, following which the child’s body was exhumed and an autopsy conducted. The report indicated severe head injuries. The same evening, police took the mother into custody. During interrogation, she confessed.
