A police patrol team spotted the situation and quickly acted. They jumped into the lake and managed to rescue Shwetha, 33, and her four-year-old daughter. Sadly, her son, Srihans, also four, did not survive. His body was recovered the next morning with the help of expert swimmers.

Shwetha and her daughter are now recovering in the hospital. Shwetha, who is a software engineer, faces charges of murder and attempted murder. Her husband, Vidyadhar Reddy, also a software engineer, was in Warangal when the incident occurred.

Both Shwetha and Vidyadhar work from home for different software companies. Their argument over childcare became intense, and family elders intervened.

However, Shwetha, in a fit of rage, took her children, Srihans and Sriha, on a scooter to the lake and threw them in before jumping herself.

The police, led by Head Constable Janakiram and Constable Prabhakar, acted heroically to save Shwetha and her daughter but could not locate the boy in time. Shwetha now faces serious legal consequences as the investigation continues.
