Raichur: In a grisly incident, police arrested a man for allegedly killing his 14-month-old infant in Raichur.

According to police officials, Mahantesh (32) resident of Kanasavi village in Lingasugur taluk killed his toddler son Abhinava. The man confessed to the police that he committed the crime, an IANS report said.

The accused had maintained that his wife had an affair and he wanted to go for a second marriage. However, he thought that the child from the first wife would be a hurdle.

He killed the child and hid the dead body beneath small boulders in the village. After a missing case was lodged, the police suspected and grilled Mahantesh. First, he maintained that he had burnt the body, and after three days he showed the place where he had hidden the child’s body.

The police have recovered the body and sent it for post-mortem. Mudagal police are investigating the case.
