Kurnool (Andhra Pradesh) [India], September 14 (ANI): Two children died of food poisoning, and another is in critical condition in Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh after they consumed biscuits bought from a local shop along with tea on Sunday.

As per Prasad, Sub Inspector (SI), Allagadda Rural Police Station, three children of the same family bought biscuits at a small shop near their house in Chinthakommadinne village on Sunday evening.

“Jamal Bi (8), Hussain Basha (6) and Hussain Bi (4) consumed biscuits along with tea at around 5.00 pm on Sunday. After that, all three children started vomiting. Family members immediately took them to Allagadda Government Hospital. Hussain Basha breathed his last while undergoing treatment, at around 8.30 pm,” said the SI.
