Chikkamagaluru: A 28-year-old woman was arrested by the Tavarakere Police for allegedly throwing her three-month-old baby into a canal.

The deceaed bay is Tejas and the accused is his mother Kamala.

As per the sources, Kamala and her mother-in-law had taken the child to a private hospital in Tavarakere when he fell sick three days ago. The baby was admitted to the hospital and was undergoing treatment. On Tuesday night, Tejas allegedly began to cry and was inconsolable. Irritated by this Kamala allegedly took Tejas and allegedly threw the baby into the canal (Upper Bhadra project), which is currently under construction.

However, the incident came to light when the baby’s body was found floating in the Bhadra River on Wednesday, November 6.

Following the incident, the village residents immediately informed the Tavarakere Police, who arrived at the spot carried on the investigation.

Tejas’ body has been sent for an autopsy as the police are uncertain whether the baby was dead or alive before he was thrown into the canal.
