A woman in Madhya Pradesh allegedly drowned her six-year-old son in a well to hide her illicit relations with a relative, police said.

The 25-year-old woman, a resident of Sarangpur village in Hoshangabad district, murdered her son as per instructions from her paramour Devi Singh and then lodged a police complaint saying her son was missing, police said.

Devi Singh used to visit her frequently in the absence of her husband, Kamal, who has a job in Indore. The woman, police said, was afraid that her son who had seen her in a compromising position with Devi Singh may reveal all to the father.

"The murder was allegedly committed to prevent the revelation of the love affair the woman was having with Devi Singh who lived in her neighbourhood," police said.
