The incident came to light when Seth checked into Hotel Sol Banyan Grande at Candolim with her son on Saturday, departing on Monday. The discovery of bloodstains on the hotel room floor left the hotel staff with no choice but to alert the authorities, setting off a chain of investigations.

Reviewing the hotel's CCTV footage, authorities observed Seth leaving the hotel without her child. Further inquiries with the hotel staff revealed Seth's insistence on arranging a taxi to Bengaluru, despite the staff cautioning her about the exorbitant cost.

Acting promptly, the police contacted the taxi driver through the information provided by the hotel staff. Intercepting Seth during her journey, they engaged her directly. Initially claiming to have left her son with a friend in Fatorda, Seth provided a false address when questioned. Subsequently, upon the police's insistence, the taxi was redirected to the nearest police station.
