Police Thursday had said the woman, Roopa Devi, was allegedly first strangulated and her throat slit, while her son was strangulated to death in their rented room.

Neeraj Sharma (26), the houseowner’s son, said: “I was on the terrace when I heard the elder brother come up and knock on the door while calling Raju, the child’s father. When he received no response, he went inside and I heard a loud cry… I rushed down and saw the boy dangling from the ceiling fan with a dupatta tied around his neck. His mother was lying on the floor in a pool of blood. Her throat had been slit and there was a knife lying next to the door,” Sharma said.
