Mumbai, May 10 (IANS) A four-year-old boy died Saturday morning after he was thrown by his mother from the fourth floor of a building under construction in Worli in south Mumbai two days ago. Anita Pulli, 23, threw Rishi, 4, from the building after a quarrel with her husband Ramesh Pulli, who works as a peon, a police official said.

According to the police, Thursday evening, Anita who was in an inebriated state, told her husband that if he did not accede a demand she had made, she would throw the child.

After Ramesh refused, she flung her minor son from the building, the police said.

The child sustained severe injuries. He died in hospital Saturday morning.

For the past few months, Ramesh suspected his wife was having an extra-marital affair, the police said. They added that Anita is said to be a heavy drinker and a drug addict.
