Hyderabad: A 26-year-old woman killed her three-year-old visually challenged son before ending her life at LB Nagar on Monday night.
Identified as Mamatha, she killed her three-year-old son Rayan before ending her life. Mamatha of Yadadri district had married her close relative G Shankaraiah of Nalgonda district in 2012. The couple was blessed with a son three years ago.
