Tripura Woman Allegedly Kills Son Over Theft, Lack of Studying; Arrested


A woman in Tripura has allegedly strangled her nine-year-old son to death out of anger over his repeated thefts and lack of interest in studying.


The woman, identified as Suprabha Bal, confessed to the crime and was found sitting beside her son’s body when the police arrived. The incident occurred in Agartala’s Joynagar area, and Bal has since been arrested.

Bal, a daily laborer at a construction site, explained that she had been struggling to raise her son alone, as her husband is missing and her daughter is married.

“I couldn’t go to work or live in peace because of his actions. I killed him and am ready to go to jail for it,” she admitted.

The police have recovered a piece of rope and a bamboo stick from her home, which were allegedly used in the murder.
