A woman stabbed her 5-year-old daughter and has pleaded guilty to manslaughter by diminished responsibility. a legal clause for people who are deemed mentally unstable to take responsibility of their crime. According to reports, she stabbed her daughter for the fear of contracting the COVID-19 virus and dying.

An Indian woman living in the UK, Sutha Sivanantham, admitted killing her five-year-old daughter at their home. Sivanantham reportedly thought the little girl could not live without her if she were to contract the virus and die. According to reports, her husband Suganthan Sivanantham has blamed the pandemic and said that the lockdown restrictions may have "pushed her over the edge".

The woman stabbed her daughter 15 times who was lying on the bed in the apartment in South London before injuring herself too on June 30 last year, according to reports. She stabbed her daughter in the neck, the chest and the abdomen area.

Sivanantham was found injured in her abdomen in her bedroom by her neighbours at Monarch Parade, Mitcham at around 4 PM. She was taken to the hospital where she remained for two months before going into police custody.

Sivanantham got married to her husband in an arranged marriage in 2006. She complained about being severely ill with unknown ailments since a year before the tragedy. The woman has denied murder but admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. Suganthan Sivanantham who is a Sainsbury worker reportedly said that he hasn't spoken to his wife but he accepts that she is not responsible for her actions. He said, "I know that if she was well she would not have been able to kill our daughter."

She was charged under sections 37 and 41 of the Mental Health Act and was sent to be treated in the hospital. A psychiatrist who has treated Sivanantham revealed that the COVID-19 lockdown causing social isolation and stress contributed to the serious mental illness in the woman.
