Mother THROWS her disabled son into a crocodile-infested river after argument with her husband – the boy died


A mother has bizarrely thrown her disabled six-year-old son into a crocodile-infested river where he has reportedly been mauled to death by reptiles.

The incident happened in Uttara Kannada, a district in the western Indian state of Karnataka on Saturday evening.

What Really Happened?

Savitri Kumar, 26, had an explosive argument with the boy’s father, Ravi Kumar, 27, who repeatedly ordered her to ‘throw the child away’, the Times of India reports. 

It is gathered that Ravi had always been questioning his wife’s decision to give birth to a child with a disability.

When the parents fought about their son again on Saturday evening, Savitri was ‘distressed’ and reportedly threw her son into a waste canal that flows into the Kali river, which is infested with crocodiles.

Police Couldn’t Save Him

Neighbours who witnessed this called the police, who deployed divers to search for the boy in the water, but to no avail, as the darkness could not let them.

They then returned on Sunday morning and found the child’s body, which showed bite marks all over.

The boy was missing a hand, which a police officer suggested indicated that the boy was mauled to death by one or more crocodiles.

A post mortem has been ordered to determine the six-year-old’s cause of death.

The couple also has another son aged two and is said to frequently fight about their older son’s speech impediment. 

Police has ruled it as a ‘murder‘ case and both the husband and wife have been arrested.
