The founder of an AI startup, Suchana Seth, is accused of murdering her 4-year-old son. Police arrested Suchana on Sunday while she was trying to flee to Karnataka from Goa.
The matter came to light when the hotel staff noticed that Suchana checked into their hotel with her son but was left alone. Also, housekeeping staff noticed some blood stains in the hotel room, and she was trying to leave by stuffing her child’s body in a suitcase.
This news has shaken the entire nation. Suchana has now been arrested, and the reason why she killed her 4-year-old son is yet to be disclosed. According to the recent developments in the case, postmortem reports of Suchana’s son revealed that he was killed by smothering with a pillow or a cloth.
Suchana’s neighbors told the investigating team that she was not really friendly and that she always reserved herself. Her neighbor also told her that she used to go to the office in the morning and return late at night.
