KORBA: A woman allegedly killed her two-year-old son by banging him on the floor of her house in Chhattisgarh's Korba district after being harried by his demand for being breast-fed, police said on Thursday.

The incident took place on Wednesday in Sector-5 area, about 10 km from the district headquarters, under Balco police station limits, they said.
