Bengaluru's AI startup CEO Suchan Seth 'strangulated' her 4-year-old son, a chargesheet by Goa Police has revealed.

In a 642-page chargesheet, Goa Police mentioned that the mother strangulated her son and therefore the child died as a result of shock and respiratory asphyxia.

The chargesheet also includes a scribbled note written on a tissue paper using an eyeliner by the accused. They have also attached the confirmation from handwriting experts who identified it as Seth's handwriting.

Suchana Seth has been booked under Sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of office) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 8 of the Goa Children's Act.

Seth's husband Venkat Raman said despite orders from a family court in Bengaluru, she did not allow him to meet their son. Raman was in Jakarta, Indonesia when the murder took place. The AI start-up CEO was locked in a divorce dispute with her husband.

Why did Bengaluru CEO Suchana Seth kill her son? Here's what police say

Last month, the Goa court allowed an application by the father of Suchana Seth to get his daughter's mental health condition examined by a board of doctors.

According to her LinkedIn profile, Seth is an AI ethics expert and data scientist with over 12 years of experience in mentoring data science teams, and scaling machine learning solutions at start-ups and industry research labs.
