In a shocking incident, two children died of thirst while walking through a forest in Telangana’s Adilabad district.

Bodies of 12-year-old Madhu and eight-year-old Ashok were found in a forest area near Muddaram village of Chennur ‘mandal’ on Monday, police said.

The children’s mother, who had gone in search of water, was found unconscious in another place. She is said to be critical.

The woman and her children were on their way to another village, Muddaram, to attend a marriage on Sunday. They were walking through the forest when the children collapsed due to severe heat and thirst.

The mother ran around searching for water but she too collapsed in the heat.
