Apparently disturbed over some family dispute, a woman allegedly committed suicide after administering poison to her two minor sons in Rajasthan's Jhunjhunu district, police said.

The incident took place last on Monday night in Ghumansar village where 35-year-old woman Santosh after heated arguments with her husband Rajesh administered poison to sons Amit (12) and Sumit (10) and consumed poison herself, they said.

"Shocked by her step, other family members rushed them to a nearby hospital where the kids were declared brought dead while the woman died late last (Monday) night," the police said.

"Today (Tuesday), the deceased woman's brother Sanjay lodged an FIR against her husband and the matter is being investigated," they added.
