Bhubaneswar: In another barbaric incident, a woman fed poison to her daughter and son to death and then attempted to commit suicide at Laxmiprasad village under Khandapada police limits in Nayagarh district last night.
The deceased were identified as Shibani (10) and Sai (5).
According to reports, Ahalya Khuntia, wife of Bapi Khuntia of Laxmiprasad, committed the offences over a family quarrel. Bapi runs a iron grill-making shop.
Ahalya was admitted at the Nayagarh District Headquarters Hospital first and then shifted to Cuttack as her condition deteriorated.
Meanwhile, Ahalya’s family members have held her in-laws responsible and demanded an investigation.
