Two children died while their mother was in critical condition after allegedly consuming poison here in East Singhbhum district of Jharkhand today.

Thirty-year old Kumkum Devi allegedly consumed poison after feeding her two children, including a girl, with poison-laced food following a family feud, police sources said.

While eight-year old Prerna and five-year old Yash died within hours, Devi was rushed to a hospital in Kharangajhar in serious condition.

Devi's husband was engaged in money lending business.
