BANGALORE: A mentally distressed woman allegedly killed her five-year-old son by pushing him into the sump and tried to end her life by jumping into the same sump.

However, she was rescued and   hospitalised.

The incident was reported at their residence in Subhash Nagar in Nelamangala  on the outskirts of the city                     on Wednesday.

The deceased, Chinmaya, was a UKG student at BP Indian School, while his mother is identified as Vaishnavi. The boy’s father Kumaraswamy is a software engineer at a private company on Airport Road.

Police said that Vaishnavi was distressed and she was under treatment. As she had not been taking tablets regularly, her husband had advised her not to do so. This had reportedly led to quarrel between the couple.

On Wednesday afternoon , Chinmaya returned home from school and Vaishnavi allegedly pushed him into the sump, which is in front of the house and jumped in.

The owner of the house noticed it and rescued the Vaishnavi.

“Both were shifted to a nearby hospital where Chinmaya was declared brought dead. His mother is hospitalised,” police said.

Nelamangala Town police registered a case in this connection and are investigating further.
