Ghaziabad: An eight-month-old boy died in mysterious circumstances at his home, with his parents alleging foul play.
The baby`s mother Jaya, who works at a private hospital, received a phone call from home on Thursday while she was on duty that her eight-month-old son Chintu had died.
She rushed home and took the child to the hospital where he was declared dead.
The woman alleged that that her husband`s brother and his wife, who were living in the same house and with whom they had a property dispute, were behind her son`s death.
Police said they will take further action once they receive the post-mortem report.
