CALANGUTE: A Panaji children’s court extended the police remand of Suchana Seth, who is accused of murdering her four-year-old son in Goa, for five more days. She will be produced again before the court on January 19.

Suchana Seth, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a startup company in Bengaluru, was brought to the children’s court after her six-day police remand came to an end today (Monday).

The investigation officer, Inspector Paresh Naik of Calangute police station, said, “Panaji children’s court has extended police remand of accused Suchana Seth for five more days. She is to be produced again before the court on January 19.”

The accused, identified as Suchana Seth, was arrested earlier, police said. She was caught in Chitradurga district while trying to flee in a cab with her son’s body stuffed in a bag.

“A woman asked the hotel staff to arrange a taxi for Bengaluru. After the checkout, when the hotel staff went to clean the room, they found red-coloured stains, which they assumed to be blood. The staff immediately informed the police,” Nidhin Valsan, Superintendent of Police, North Goa, had said earlier.

The police further stated upon their inquiry, the woman told officials that she had left her son at a friend’s place in Goa. “The police reached the hotel and tried to contact the woman through the driver. The police inquired about the woman’s son, and she said that the child had been staying at a friend’s place. However, the police found the address provided by the woman to be fake”, the police official said.

“Accordingly, the driver was asked to take the car to the police station, and on checking the luggage, the police found the body of the boy,” the Superintendent of Police had added.

An FIR was registered in the matter and the Goa court remanded the accused to six days in police custody. Calangute police, last Friday, took Suchana Seth to the service apartment to recreate the scene of the crime. (ANI)
