- The woman and her paramour, however, continued with their relationship
- On Friday afternoon, the child saw her mother in a compromising position with a 60-year-old man when he woke up from his nap
- Baffled at the sight, the child told her mother that he would complain to his father
- Following this, the woman used a towel and strangled her child to death
- The police have said that the accused woman and her alleged paramour killed the nine-year-old boy
- The woman was taken into custody on Saturday and during interrogation, she confessed to killing her own child

- However, her husband alleged foul play and when the woman was interrogated further, she confessed to the crime
After the incident, the accused also lied to her neighbours and told them that the nine-year-old was sick. Rajasekhar Reddy, Nalgonda rural sub-inspector told TOI,
After some time, she told them that he was not responding and had developed some rashes. The locals, who went to the accused’s house, found him dead.
The neighbours informed the boy’s father about the child’s health, following which, he went to the house and found his body.
