Police in Malkajgiri, Hyderabad have arrested a house-wife named Purnima for allegedly killing her own son, who was born just 25 days back. According to police, the mother strangled her son to death as she could not digest the fact that she conceived a baby boy even fourth time. She was longing to have a daughter this time.
Purnima has tried to present a different picture. She told police that chain-snatchers riding on a bike have hit her and in the process, he baby boy was got injured. “I have taken my son to a nearby hospital along with my husband and he died there” she said.
Sensing some glaring gaps in her argument which they felt illogical, police verified and concluded that no such chain-snatching incident has taken place at all during the odd-hour. They also found a cloth which has blood stains at her residence.
Police brought the couple to the police station and started grilling them and finally came out the stunning truth. Purnima wants a daughter and not a son, this desire prompted her to kill her son, and in the process, her motherliness too, a police official said.
