The Hush Post: A woman allegedly killed her six-year-old son with a dagger (kirpan) at Bathinda in Punjab in a fit of anger. The accused allegedly attacked her only son with the small dagger while giving him a bath at home in Bhai Mati Dass Nagar, said Bathinda Station House Officer (Civil Lines) Rashpal Singh. She stuffed a hand towel in the child’s mouth so that his screams could not be heard.
The boy, Harkirat Singh also called Havvy, suffered injuries in chest and abdomen and died on the spot. The boy was to get ready for going out with his father and grandfather. He was reluctant to take a bath which incited the mother’s anger. Havvy was a student of Lord Rama Public School and studied in class I.
When the family members reached the bathroom, the dead body of the child was lying in a pool of blood with the intestines jutting out onto the floor due to the constant stabbing. After committing the crime, the mother told her family. The accused has been arrested.
