Staff Reporter,

SENSATION prevailed in Pravesh Nagar when a woman committed suicide after killing her nine-year-old son on Wednesday night. The deceased, Amreen Bi Irfan Shafi (30) and her son Umar Shafi (9) were the residents of Pravesh Nagar, near Rehman Hotel.

Amreen’s husband Irfan Shafi is a driver. Often, Amreen Bi and Irfan used to quarrel over personal issues. On Wednesday, Irfan left home after an argument with his wife. Amreen Bi lost her temper. She turned her ‘dupatta’ into a noose, tied it around her son Umar’s neck and strangulated him to death. She allegedly hanged his body with the ceiling fan. Amreen Bi then ended her life by hanging from the ceiling fan with a saree.

The incident came to light at around 10 pm when a neighbour found the mother-son duo hanging from the ceiling fan.
Crowd gathered in front of their house as the news about the incident spread like jungle fire in the locality.
Staff from Yashodhara Nagar Police Station led by Assistant Police Inspector P J Bawankar visited the spot. After conducting panchnama, cops sent the bodies to Mayo Hospital for post-mortem. Further investigations are underway.
