Agitated by her toddler son’s persistence for breast feeding, a mother suffering from mental health issues allegedly killed her baby in Chhattisgarh’s Korba district, police said on Thursday.

The incident, as per police, took place on Wednesday in Sector-5 area, about 10 km from the district headquarters, under Balco police station limits.
