The man, Maan Singh, his daughter (11), and sons Abhay and Roopesh, residents of village Shyamo under station, consumed poison last night, they said.

The family's neighbours saw the four lying on ground with white foam oozing out of their mouths and rushed them to the hospital, where Singh and were declared brought dead, the police said.

Abhay and Roopesh are in a critical condition and undergoing treatment at a private nursing home, they said.

Singh's wife had died a fortnight ago after a long illness and the family was depressed over it, they said.
