The woman went to the fourth floor of the trauma centre in the morning and threw the child from the window. The boy died on the spot, the spokesperson said.

Circle Officer (Chowk) Durga Prasad Tiwari said the lady had been arrested. During interrogation, the woman revealed that she was disturbed due to the illness of her son.

Police are probing the matter and trying to obtain CCTV footages.
