CHENNAI: K Revathy, the woman accused of killing the 3-year-old child, was spotted having ice cream apparently minutes after she disposed the child’s body in a corporation dumpyard on Saturday.

The victim-child’s father told Express that they were all assuming the child was playing in Revathy’s house that afternoon. “I had gone for work at around 9 am, while my wife was ill so she was resting at home. Around 12.30 pm, Revathy had come home claiming her daughter was not eating, so she sought permission from my wife to take my daughter to her house to play with her child. Agreeing to this, she took my daughter to her house,” the father of the victim said.

“Later, at around 2.30 pm, my wife spotted Revathy having ice- cream along with her father nearby. When asked about the child, Revathy claimed my child cried on the way and hence she allowed her to return home. Panicked by this, my wife called me and I immediately rushed to the spot and when we did not find her we filed a police complaint,” he added.

“Revathy had been living with her father and children on the second floor of the Tsunami colony for the last four years. But it has been only a year since they moved to the block right opposite ours. I have not spoken much to Revathy, but our children used to play together,” said the father.

“I have spotted children from both the families play. It has come as a shock to us, when we were told that Revathy murdered the child. We searched for the child that entire night, but we did not find anything suspicious with her,” said Sauri, a resident of the same locality.
