BENGALURU: The police are yet to trace Sathvik, the two-year-old boy whose mother committed suicide by jumping from Tipu Drop at Nandi Hills on Friday evening, as most of them were deployed on bandh duty in Kolar and Chikballapur.
A police officer said, “Though we had plans to continue search operations with the locals today, we were not able to do so due to bandh duty.”
On Monday, police found Prateeksha’s body in a decomposed state. A source said, “It is a blind case. We are gathering information from locals. Though we are continuing the search operations, we can’t rule out the possibility of the mother leaving her son somewhere before she took the leap.”
Prateeksha, from Bagepalli, married Suman three-and-a-half years ago. Suman and his parents are absconding after her father Nagaraj filed a police complaint against them over dowry harassment.
On Friday, there was a fight between Prateeksha and Suman. Prateeksha left the house with her son saying she was going to her parents’ house. But instead, she went to Tipu Drop and ended her life. Her body was found on Saturday morning. Police are now searching for her son.
