A 26-year-old woman allegedly strangled her infant son to death after a tiff with her husband over taking the 11-month-old baby to a hospital since he had fever, police said on Sunday, adding that the woman has been arrested and booked for the murder of the child.

The police said the incident took place in south Delhi’s Dera village near Fatehpur Beri on Friday and the matter was reported to the police by the woman’s relatives.

Harsha Vardhan Mandava, additional deputy commissioner of police (south), said the woman, identified as Jyoti, was married to Satveer Tanwar in 2011. Jyoti’s relative, who called the police, tried to mislead the cops by telling them that Satveer killed his son. A police team reached a private hospital where the child was taken by his father and other relatives.

Police said both Jyoti and Satveer were interrogated, and Jyoti later confessed to have strangled the infant with her dupatta.
