Malkangiri: A woman with her two minor children consumed poison in a bid to commit suicide at Telrai village in Kalimela block here on Saturday. The woman and one of the children passed away while another 4-year-old boy is currently undergoing treatment at Kalimela hospital.

As per reports, the mother, Muka Padiani (45), is a widow who lived with her four kids in Telrai village. Her two kids, one son and one daughter were living in a hostel for some time now.

Even though Muka's husband had passed away four years ago, she was yet to receive any due benefits from the State.

With financial constraints looming large, Muka with Muna and Deba consumed poison on Saturday. When the locals came to know they immediately informed the Police and the trio were taken to hospital. Muka and Muna could not survive, whereas a critical Deba is undergoing treatment.
