Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Police arrested a mother, who allegedly killed her 13-year-old son because he objected to her 'illicit' affair.
The 32-year-old mother gave electric shock to her son in Nalgonda district resulting in his death after he objected to her relationship, police said on Saturday.
The incident occurred at Damarchala village of Miryalguda Mandal of the district yesterday, they said.
According to police, the boy was tied to a pole near his house and his mother allegedly held a live electric wire to his body resulting in his death.
