Malkangiri: In a shocking incident, a woman allegedly committed suicide after poisoning her two children at Godaguda village here late Saturday night. Both the children have been admitted to District Headquarters Hospital in critical condition.

The deceased has been identified as Sita Madkami. Her two kids, battling with life, are Dharitri (5) and Debendra (4).

As per reports, Sita mixed the poison with food and gave it to her kids. Later, she consumed it too. The trio started vomiting after eating the food, following which neighbours and ASHA workers rushed them to the DHH. While Sita was declared dead, the two children are undergoing treatment at the hospital.

Reportedly, Sita's husband passed away seven months back following which she found it difficult to sustain her family. Locals suspect that the she took the extreme step as she was in poor financial condition and was unable to raise her kids.

Sita’s in-laws informed the cops of the matter and further probe is currently underway.
