Muzaffarpur: Three children were found dead under mysterious circumstances and another was hospitalised in a serious condition at Goraiya in this district on Monday.
Anil Kumar (1), Arvind Kumar (5) and Anshu Kumari (6), sons of two brothers living in a joint family, were found dead in their residence this morning, police officials said.
The hospitalised boy, identified as Suraj Kumar, is son of their neighbour.
The death appears not due to food poisoning as the one-year-old boy did not take the meal last night. The hospitalised child, who was living in a separate house, was having breathing trouble and choked voice while he was being shifted to the hospital, they said.
The bodies were sent for post-mortem and higher authorities were informed to find out whether the deaths were due to any unknown disease, they said.
