A woman in her 30s allegedly killed her two daughters and later ended her life in Choutuppal in the district on Thursday.
Police identified the victims as Turpunuri Uma Rani, her daughters 13-year-old Harshini and 11-year-old Lucky.
According to the police, the incident was suspected to have occurred after midnight on Wednesday and it came to light on Thursday morning.

Shocked relatives of the family suspected family disturbances, reportedly over the alcoholic condition of the male head, and financial difficulties as reasons for the extreme step of Uma Rani.
Her husband Venkatesh, who runs small business in the town, is reportedly absconding.
