PANAJI: A woman IT professional in Goa was arrested for the murder of her 4-year-old son. Her motive stemmed from not wanting her husband to meet their son.
Suchana Seth, CEO of The Mindful AI Lab, was arrested in Karnataka’s Chitradurga on Monday while transporting her son’s body in a bag.
Following their divorce in 2020, the court had granted the husband visitation rights to see their son on Sundays.
The woman feared that if her husband met their son, he would attempt to gain custody. Consequently, she planned to end her son’s life before her husband’s scheduled visit.
The incident occurred a day prior to their planned meeting. The couple, married in 2010 and parents to the boy born in 2019, had a fallout in 2020, leading to a court case and eventual divorce. The court had granted the father permission to meet his child on Sundays, confirmed DGP Goa Jashpal Singh to India Today.
