Mother kills herself after poisoning two kids in Manikganj
A housewife has allegedly committed suicide after poisoning her two kids over a family feud at Ramkantapur village under Singair upazila of Manikganj. The deceased was identified as Rina Aktar, 27, wife of Abdul Aziz, a Saudi Arabia expatriate. Rina's two kids - Afreen, 5, and Momin, 2, fortunately managed to survive but their conditions were critical, said the locals. Officer-in-Charge of Shingair police station Khondaker Imam Hossain said the in-laws of Rina along with her husband used to torture Rina mentally. "Following the matter, Rina, on Friday evening, first poisoned the children and later she took poison herself. They were taken to local hospital for treatment where doctors declared Rina dead," he said. The children were shifted to Dhaka's Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital for better treatment, he added.
