18 students at BCM hostel fall ill

Bagepalli, Nov 10, 2012, DHNS :

A total of 30 students fell ill after consuming stale food served at the Backward Classes and Minorities (BCM) Hostel at Chakavelu in the taluk on Saturday.

Of the 30 students, 18 complained of nausea and stomachache, and have now been admitted at the government hospital in Bagepalli. The students are: Mahesh, 15, Janardhana Reddy, 15, Dhananjay 14, G R Srinivas, 15, Madhu, 14, N Bharish, 15, Kiran, 11, N Vijay Kumar, 15, Anji, 15, Nagarjuna, 12, R Satish, 16, Prakash, 16, Praveen Kumar, 14, Santhosh, 15, Devendra, 14, Santhosh Naik, 15 and Aravinda Naik, 13.

“Food served at the hostel is generally poor in quality and sometimes they even serve stale food,” complained a student.

Hostel supervisor Basavaraj remains absent most of the times, hence, there is none to ensure that good administrative practices are maintained here, the student added;
District Additional Officer S S Pujar of the BCM Department told Deccan Herald that he will visit 10 BCM hostels in the taluk to find out what basic facilities are provided to  inmates.

“Hostel supervisors, in the coming days, will be asked to stay at the hostel and check the food before it is served to the students,” he added.
