A woman ties her 8-year-old son with a rope and beats him to death with a bamboo stick in Agartala

Agartala: In a horrific incident, a woman allegedly brutally beat her eight-year-old son to death in West Joynagar, apparently unable to bear the minor’s inappropriate behavior, according to her statement to the police.

The incident took place on Monday evening in the premises of West Agartala police station. The deceased is the son of Ram Gowala and Suprabha Gwala, who hail from Kailashahar.

Police statement

According to the police, Ram Gowala abandoned the family, leaving the accused Suprabha Gowala to take care of their son alone. About two weeks ago, Suprabha moved to a rented house in West Joynagar with her son. Police said it was in this rented house that the gruesome murder took place around 6 p.m.

West Tripura police station in-charge Paritosh Das said a case under section 302 of the IPC has been lodged in connection with the incident.

The mother confesses to the crime

Suprabha confessed to the crime in front of the police, claiming that she tied her son with a rope and beat him to death with a bamboo stick. She claimed that her son caused her unbearable suffering, preventing her from working. The child, the woman claimed, was stealing money from home and causing trouble when she was taken to work. Suprabha admitted that she killed her son to free herself from this constant torment.

After the incident, West Agartala police and a large contingent of TSR forces reached the spot and found Suprabha sitting next to her son’s dead body. She stated that she would accept any punishment for her crime, including the death penalty.

Suprabha Gowala also has a married daughter. Police arrested Suprabha and recovered the minor’s body at the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.
