Woman kills 8-month-old son

In a shocking incident, a 29-year-old mentally-ill woman allegedly killed her eight month old son at her residence in Outer Delhi’s Aman Vihar area on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday. She allegedly slit the throat of her eight-month-old baby, chopped his body and was found sleeping next to it when her husband came back home, said a senior police officer, adding that she probably realised what she had done and was sleeping with the body out of guilt.The woman had been undergoing treatment at Lady Hardinge for mental health issues, police said, adding she was admitted to a hospital.

The woman had killed another son, four years ago. While neighbours claimed that the woman killed her infant son under the influence of a self styled god man, investigators said that the woman had been undergoing treatment at the psychiatry department of the LNJP hospital.
Police said that the incident was reported to them at around 2:15am. M N Tiwari, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) said, “We received information about the murder of an eight month old baby boy by his mother at Prem Nagar area of Aman Vihar. The mother, identified as Sarika was also found injured alongside the body of the eight month old boy.”
