This is what desperation sometimes can lead one to. A mother has been booked for killing her five-year-old son in Mumbai. Rina Ayare, 34, attempted to commit suicide by consuming rat poison. She fed the same poison to her five-year-old son, Harsh. While Ayare is out of danger, Harsh died while receiving treatment at Cooper Hospital in Juhu.
After a conflict with her husband (Rajesh 35), who works in a telecom company, Reena left her home on Juhu-Tara Road with her son. According to the police, Ayare took Harsh to Juhu beach. She then went to a shop and bought poison around 11 pm on Wedneday night. She first herself consumed the poison and then fed it to Harsh. When Harsh started vomiting, she panicked and rushed him to Cooper Hospital at around midnight.
According to the Assistant Medical Officer, “The rat poison caused irreversible damage to Harsh who succumbed to liver failure overnight. The doctors are unsure about the quantity of poison consumed.”
“A case has been registered following the statement of Rajesh against Rina Ayare under the charge of murder,” said Vinod Kanavaje of Santacruz police station.
