Raipur: A woman in Chhattisgarh's Raigarh district killed her only son. Reason-- she didn't like him.

In a fit of rage, the accused who has been identified as 35-year-old Sukhmati used a spade to carry out the brutal murder, the district police said on Saturday. 

Her husband Mahaveer Tando, a daily wager, often had arguments over repeated rebuking and thrashing of their 8-year-old son Lokesh.

According to the local villagers, the woman apparently had no affection for her son and was also found ill-treating him with cruelty even in public.

On Friday evening, while Mahaveer was away, Sukhmati who got offended over some issue with her son hit him on his neck with a spade. The severe injury killed the boy on the spot.

“Prima facie it appeared the woman was not happy with her son. She has been arrested and further investigation is on”, the Raigarh district superintendent of police Rajesh Agrawal told media. 

The police is also probing the mental health condition of the woman.
