The 38-year-old woman from the Indonesian capital Jakarta told police her son had had a small man-hood prior to being circumcised, but that it appeared to shrink further after the operation, police spokesman Rikwanto told AFP.
“She told police investigators that she killed him as he would have a bleak future with his small man-hood,” Rikwanto said.
“She drowned her son in a bathtub filled with water. She then dressed him and laid him on a bed. After that, she went to a nearby police office to report her crime.”
Rikwanto said the woman was fully conscious of what she had done, but police ordered a psychiatry test to assess her mental condition.
