Police recovered the bodies of a 24-year-old woman and her two minor children from their house at Nijnagar village under Madhabpur in Habiganj Friday evening.
The deceased were Hadisa Begum, 24, her two-year-old daughter Mim and seven-month-old son Mujahidul Islam.
Madhabpur police station duty officer Shyamol Kumar, quoting local people, said that seeing the woman hanging from the ceiling and throat-slit bodies of the kids, local people informed the police at about 10:00pm.
He said that they rushed the spot and recovered the bodies.
He primarily suspected that the woman might have killed herself after killing her two children.
The reason behind the deaths, however, might be ascertained after their post mortem examination, he said.
