HYDERABAD: Charred bodies of a woman and a newborn were found in an open land at Ghatkesar on the city outskirts on Sunday. The deceased, identified as K Sushrutha (26) and her four-month-old boy child, were allegedly throttled by her husband M Ramesh, according to his statement to the Palakurthi police in Warangal. Reportedly, he confessed to setting the bodies on fire after dumping them.

According to police, the residents of Kondapur village under the jurisdiction of Ghatkesar police, found two charred bodies in a land owned by a person named Dasu, and immediately informed the police.

As the cops began their investigation, they received communication from Palakurthi police informing them of Ramesh’s surrender to the latter. Inquiries revealed that Ramesh and Sushrutha had been married for four years with a four-month-old son. Owing to disputes between the couple, Sushrutha and their son had been residing with her parents.

On Saturday evening, she met Ramesh at Uppal. They later went to Outer Ring Road in Ghatkesar wherein they broke into an argument over staying together. As the argument got heated, Sushrutha reportedly took sleeping pills that she had been carrying with her. After consuming a few pills, she powdered another pill and fed his son as well.

Ramesh, who was shocked by what was happening, took the drowsy mother and child on his bike to Kondapur village and later, throttled her.  He then laid the duo on a heap of sticks, poured petrol over their bodies and set them ablaze.
