Suchana Seth has been accused of killing her four-year-old son in Goa and travelling to Karnataka with his body. She was arrested in Karnataka's Chitradurga on Monday with her son's body in a bag. According to reports, the motive behind the murder is not clear.

  • Suchana Seth is from West Bengal and her husband is from Kerala.

According police Suchana checked into a rented service apartment at Candolim in North Goa on January 6 along with her son. After a two-day stay, she informed the apartment staff of her intention to travel to Bengaluru for work and requested assistance in arranging a taxi.

The accused insisted that she would travel by taxi only, and accordingly, a vehicle was arranged on January 8 in which she left early morning. Later, when the apartment staff went to clean the room in which she stayed, they found blood stains on a towel. Upon discovering that the address provided by Suchana Seth was false, police sought assistance from the Fatorda police near Margao. Further investigation revealed that the given location was not genuine. Police, in collaboration with the authorities, contacted the taxi driver transporting the accused to Bengaluru, who had reached Chitradurga district in Karnataka. The police in Chitradurga inspected the woman's bag and found the body of the child.

North Goa SP Nidhin Valsan said, "A woman asked the hotel staff to arrange a taxi for Bengaluru...After the checkout, when the hotel staff went to clean the room, they found red-coloured stains which they assumed to be blood. The staff immediately informed the police...The police reached the hotel and tried to contact the woman through the driver.
