Chevella inspector CH Balakrishna told TOI,
Venkataiah is a paralytic patient. She took objection to his smoking and quarrelled with him.
The accused woman was also reportedly drunk at the time of the incident. Thereafter, around 5 in the evening when the fight took place, the accused mother went into another room along with son Dhanush and killed the baby for unknown reasons.
Dhanush was found dead by one of their relatives who came to the house after a few hours. The relative asked Parameshwari about the boy, however, she chose to ignore the questions that were posed to her. Later, when probed by her family members, the woman confessed to having killed her son.
