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.
