A 42-year-old man and his three sons were rushed to the hospital after they consumed poison. The incident is reported from Hikkaduwa.

Police say that the father had given his children, a seven-year old and nine-year-old twins, poison before consuming it himself.

A spokesperson for the hospital noted that none of the family members are in critical condition.

Preliminary investigations have revealed that an ongoing family dispute involving the mother seeking out foreign employment against the wishes of the father had caused issues.

Police added that there are suspicions that the father had attempted to poison his children and himself due to the absence of his wife, as she has chosen to settle overseas.
