Police are looking for a woman, who is suspected of killing a 7-year-old boy.

The tragedy took place in Dushanbe on March 5.  A 53-year-old woman, who is the wife of the uncle of the boy’s father, is suspected of committing this crime, according to the Dushanbe Police Directorate

Police are reportedly looking for the woman and an investigation is under way.      

Meanwhile, the boy’s parents consider that the woman could have killed their son out of envy.    

The boy’s aunt says they have not spoken to the woman since 2017 following another family quarrel. 

“Some media outlets report that Muborak [the name of the women suspected of killing the boy] suffers from mental illness, but it is not true, she is a very healthy woman and does not suffer from any diseases.  She could have killed the boy out of envy, because she has always envied my mom, the boy's grandmother,” the boy’s aunt noted.
