A woman killed her son after he threatened that he will reveal her affair with another man to his father.
The woman belongs to Buddaram village in Nalgonda, Telangana.
The boy was murdered after he threatened to reveal a secret she had been keeping from her husband.
She had an extra-marital affair and her son had learned about it.
The accused decided to kill her son. The police have said that the accused woman and her alleged paramour killed the nine-year-old child.
The woman was taken into custody on Saturday and during interrogation, she confessed to killing the child.
Initially, the woman tried to mislead the police by telling them that the death was natural. The woman, however, was interrogated further when her husband alleged foul play on her part and confessed to the crime.
Allegedly, the woman has been in a relationship with her paramour for the last one year. Some time ago, the woman’s husband learned about her affair and asked her to end it.
On Friday afternoon, the child saw her mother in a compromising position with a 60-year-old man. Baffled at the sight, the child told her mother that he would complain to his father. After this, the woman used a towel and strangled her child.
After the incident, the accused lied to her neighbours and told them that the nine-year-old was sick.
The neighbours informed the boy’s father about the child’s health. Following this, he went to the house and found his body. The police have said that prima facie, it appears that the woman’s paramour helped her in committing the crime.
