The Case Unveiled

As per the information given by Paresh Naik, Calangute police station inspector, on January 6, 2024, Suchana Seth along with her son checked into a hotel at North Goa’s Candolim. After staying for a couple of days, the CEO asked to arrange a taxi for them to go to Bengaluru.

However, the cop stated that the staffers suggested Seth take a flight instead as it would be a less expensive option. However, Suchana asked for a taxi. On January 8, a taxi was arranged and she left for Bengaluru.

Later when the hotel cleaning staff arrived, they found stains of blood on a towel and informed the Calangute Police. Furthermore, the staff mentioned to the cops that the kid couldn’t be spotted with the woman when she left for Banglore.

However, it was unusual to see her carrying a heavy bag. When cops called Suchana about her missing son and blood stains, she replied the stains were from her monthly periods.

About her son, Seth said that the kid is in Margao town with the woman’s friend in South Goa. She was also asked to provide the address, however it turned out to be fake. The inspector talked to the taxi driver and reached Chitradurga district for investigation.
