Odisha Man Arrested For Killing Infant Son, Burying Body

Bhadrak: A tribal man was arrested today on the charges of killing his infant son and later burying his body. The accused Tubu Munda allegedly killed his one-and-a-half-month-old son in an inebriated condition following a tiff with his wife on August 30.

However, the matter came to light after Munda’s wife Nandini lodged a police complaint against him in connection with the murder after the couple picked up another quarrel on September 7.

Based on the complaint, Police today exhumed the body of the infant from the spot. Earlier, Munda’s wife reportedly had helped him to dispose the body.

“My husband had come home after work in a drunken state. After dinner we all went to sleep. Later, I found that blood was oozing out of my son’s mouth,” said Nandini.

Nandini further stated that her husband later buried the body in her presence at an isolated place.

“Our investigation in this connection is on and the decomposed body has been sent for autopsy. Only after the post mortem report comes, we can further comment on the allegations,” said Bhadrak Additional SP, Kailash Panda.
