A woman has committed suicide after killing her six-year-old son in Bakoshpota village of Jhenaidah's Moheshpur upazila.

The incident took place around 3am on Saturday.

The deceased were identified as Rabbi Hasan Rifat, 6, and Rifa Khatun, 25, wife of Mamun Miya, confirmed Moheshpur police station officer-in-charge (OC) Morshed Hossain Khan.
