She first forced her one-year old daughter named Ayesha to drink the poison and then consumed poison herself. While the child died on the spot, Samira was shifted to a nearby hospital in a critical situation. Police said the woman died later during treatment.
The Saddar Duniya Pur SHO said the case investigation was under way and all the family members would be interrogated.
