The CEO of an AI start-up based in Bengaluru was detained on Monday as she fled in a taxi after killing her four-year-old son at a hotel in Goa and stuffing his body inside a bag. The Karnataka Police took 39-year-old Suchana Seth into custody in Chitradurga. The CEO arrived at the Sinquerim hotel in North Goa on January 6 with her son.
Blood stains on the sheets were discovered by a hotel employee cleaning the room after Seth had checked out, which prompted the hotel management to call the police. Seth killed her son with a sharp weapon, according to the police, and then demanded from the hotel management to book a taxi to return to Bengaluru, stating that she preferred to travel by road. She had left the hotel by herself, according to CCTV footage the police viewed. Her first account of having left her son with a relative in South Goa didn’t add up when she told the police.
