Hyderabad: A woman from Buddaram village in Nalgonda, Telangana murdered her son after he threatened to reveal a secret she had been keeping from her husband. Allegedly, she had an extra-marital affair and her son had learned about the same. She accused decided to eliminate her son after he threatened to reveal her relationship to her husband. 

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. The woman and her paramour, however, continued with their relationship. 

How it happened

On Friday afternoon, the child saw her mother in a compromising position with a 60-year-old man when he woke up from his nap. Baffled at the sight, the child told her mother that he would complain to his father. Following this, the woman used a towel and strangled her child to death. 

After the incident, the accused lied to her neighbours and told them that the nine-year-old was sick. Rajasekhar Reddy, Nalgonda rural sub-inspector told The Times of India, "After some time, she told them that he was not responding and had developed some rashes. The locals, who went to the accused's house, found him dead."

The neighbours informed the boy's father about the child's health, following which, 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. However, the police are yet to confirm the involvement of the accused.
