New Delhi:

The chargesheet filed by Goa Police against the CEO of an AI start-up, accused of killing her four-year-old son at an apartment, reveals several chilling details of the gruesome murder. Suchana Seth faces charges of murdering her son in a Goa hotel room over a bitter custody battle with her husband.

Suchana Seth, 39, was arrested from Chitradurga in Karnataka on January 8, while she was traveling with her son’s body concealed in a bag.

The Calangute police presented a 642-page chargesheet against Seth in the Goa Children’s Court, detailing how she allegedly murdered her son and then tried to escape.

Here are 10 details mentioned in the chargesheet:

  1. Suchana Seth was involved in a bitter custody battle with her husband Venkat Raman. In a message on January 6, she told her estranged husband that he could meet the child the next day. But nobody was home in Bengaluru when he came over.
  2. Suchana Seth and her son had checked into a service apartment in Candolim on January 6, as she did not want the child to meet his father.
