Mysuru: In a deeply disturbing incident, a man has been arrested for allegedly killing his own son by throwing him into a lake in the Periyapatna region of Mysuru, Karnataka. This horrifying event has sent shockwaves through the community, leaving everyone with more questions than answers.

A Shocking Incident

The tragic incident unfolded in the jurisdiction of the Periyapatna police station. The accused, identified as Ganesh, resides in Makodu village near Periyapatna town. According to the police, Ganesh and his wife Laxmi were parents to three children, the first two of whom were daughters. Sadly, Laxmi lost her life while giving birth to their third child.

In the aftermath of this tragedy, Ganesh made a heart-wrenching decision. He left his two daughters in the village under the care of his mother, Anjanamma, and took his son with him to Bengaluru. However, he eventually returned to the village, where he and his mother resided together. Four days before the incident, a bitter dispute erupted between Ganesh and his mother, leading him to take his one-and-a-half-year-old son away from their home.

A Devastating Act of Violence

It is here that the story takes a horrific turn. Ganesh is accused of throwing his son into a nearby lake before vanishing from the scene. The child’s lifeless body was later discovered in the lake by villagers who, upon making this tragic find, promptly alerted the police.

Learning of the grim discovery, the mother-in-law of the accused immediately reported him to the authorities. She expressed her deep suspicions that Ganesh may have been responsible for the child’s death.

The police launched an investigation into the matter, leading to Ganesh’s arrest on Wednesday. In a chilling confession, Ganesh allegedly admitted to his crime. He told the police that he was unable to care for his child, which drove him to commit this unthinkable act by throwing him into the lake.

This deeply tragic case has sent shockwaves through the community, leaving everyone grappling with the senselessness of this violent act.

The investigation is ongoing as authorities work to uncover all the details surrounding this heart-wrenching incident. The loss of a young life is a somber reminder of the importance of mental health support and care for parents and families in distress.
