The woman, identified as Sushma, can be seen walking next to the railing holding her child as if trying to contemplate what to do next. The child is unaware and holding on to her mother when she suddenly throws the child off the building. 

Following this, the woman looks like she was attempting to jump and even climbs to the other side of the railing when one of their neighbours comes out and brings her back in.

The child named Deethi was mentally challenged. In fact, her mother abandoned her at a railway station three months ago. But the father traced the baby and brought it back home. 

Sushma is a dentist by profession. The deceased child's father is an engineer with a major IT Firm. A case has been registered against the mother in Sampangiramanagar police station, following which he was arrested.

Police sources said neighbours heard the child's cries and came out of their house. They pulled her back and informed the police.
