'Child died of shock': Goa Police say on Bengaluru CEO Suchana Seth strangling her son

Panaji/IBNS: In a chilling detail, the chargesheet filed by Goa Police against Suchana Seth, the CEO of an AI start-up, accused of killing her four-year-old son at an apartment, revealed that the child died of shock.

Suchana Seth, 39, who was the founder of artificial intelligence start-up Mindful AI Labs, was arrested by police from Karnataka on Jan 8.

She is facing charges of murdering her son in a Goa hotel room over a bitter custody battle with her husband.

The Calangute police presented a 642-page chargesheet against Seth in the Goa Children's Court, detailing how she allegedly murdered her son and then tried to escape.

As per the chargesheet, on Jan 6, Seth told her estranged husband in a message that he could meet the child the next day. But nobody was home in Bengaluru when he came over.

Seth and her son instead checked into a service apartment in Candolim on Jan 6, as she did not want the child to meet his father.

Hotel staff grew suspicious of her when Seth, laden with an unusually heavy bag, checked out without her son, whose absence raised immediate alarms. When they went to her room, they found bloodstains and a handwritten note and immediately alerted the cops.

In the note, she had written about her feud with her husband and the mental exhaustion due to the ongoing court proceedings.

The note was written on tissue paper using eyeliner. Handwriting experts have confirmed the authenticity of the note.

Cops promptly contacted the taxi driver that she had booked and spoke to Seth. She claimed that she had left her son at a friend's place in Madgaon and the stains in the hotel room were menstrual blood.

After realising that she had provided them with a fake address, cops spoke to the taxi driver and instructed him to take her to the closest Aimangala Police Station.

According to the autopsy, the child was smothered to death either with a piece of cloth or a pillow. The child died of shock and respiratory asphyxia resulting from strangling.
