An Indonesian mother has been taking into custody after drowning her 9 year old son because she feared his small penis would put him at great disadvantage as he grew to become an adult.
Told a Jakarta police spokesperson Rikwanto: ‘She told police investigators that she killed him as he would have a bleak future with his small penis.
“It seems like she committed the murder consciously. She filled up a bathtub with water, tied the kid up and drowned him. Afterward, she dressed him. It was all done very neatly. She then dressed him and laid him on a bed.
‘After that, she went to a nearby police office to report her crime.’
The woman went on to disclose that prior to a circumcision the boy had received his penis was small but had become even smaller after receiving one as well.
Disclosed further Rikwanto: “We haven’t found another motive. So far, the only thing we know is that she killed her son because she was ashamed of the size of his genitals and she was afraid that he would not have a good future,”
At present the woman has been remanded to undergo psychological tests and has been charged with violating Article 338 of the Criminal Code and faces 15 years in jail if she is proven guilty.
