Goa court extends police custody of Suchana Seth, the CEO of a Bengaluru business.

A Goa court has granted Bengaluru startup CEO Suchana Seth, who is under investigation for the possible death of her four-year-old son, an additional five days in police detention. After her initial six-day remand expired, Seth was hauled before the Goa Children’s Court. Since the inquiry is still ongoing, the Calangute Police requested an extension of her incarceration.

A senior police officer stated to news agency PTI on Monday that the suspect is not assisting the investigation team. We asked for an extension of her custody so that we could question her more thoroughly. Among other things, we have to get a sample of her DNA,” he said.

Seth (39), a resident of Chitradurga, Karnataka, was taken into custody on January 8. She is charged with killing her son in a Goa service apartment and trying to take his body to Bengaluru. The Goa Children’s Act and sections 302 (murder) and 201 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) are the charges on which the Calangute police have booked her.

CEO Suchana Seth is leading a startup company named “Mindful AI Lab.” Her LinkedIn website lists her as one of the top “100 Brilliant Women in AI Ethics for 2021.”

Venkat Raman showed up at the Calangute police station on January 13 to state the authorities. According to the officer who spoke to PTI, Raman informed the police that he and Seth were divorcing in a Bengaluru family court. 

According to the official, who was quoted by PTI, Raman further stated that although the court had granted him visitation rights, Seth had denied him the opportunity to see his son for the previous five Sundays. Raman’s son was killed when he was in Indonesia.

A five-sentence note allegedly written by Seth, the man who killed his four-year-old son in a Goa hotel room, was found by police on January 11. According to the detectives, it might hold the key to revealing the crime’s motivation.

The officer told HT, under condition of anonymity, “Our forensic team has recovered and painstakingly pieced together the pieces of tissue that were found in her luggage bag.” It provides insight into the accused’s mental state and suggests that she didn’t want her son to accompany the father. The founder of The Conscious AI Lab claimed that when she woke up, her kid was dead in the room, although she has not yet admitted to the murder.

Director of Police in North Goa Nidhin Valsan informed news agency ANI that the accused appeared dissatisfied with the recent court ruling that allowed her husband to have time with their child, even if the true motive for the murder is yet unknown. 

Divorce proceedings involving the accused and her spouse began in 2022. Seth had also claimed her husband of assaulting her and their four-year-old boy, according to media reports.
