Food poisoning: 30 students take ill

More than 30 students of Kasturba Gandhi Residential School at Halli Mysore in the taluk were admitted to hospital on suspected case of food poisoning on Friday.

About 82 students are studying in the school. The students had taken breakfast after completing routine exercises. After a few minutes, 30 students fell unconscious. The students were immediately shifted to the community health centre in Halli Mysore. All the students complained of dizziness and stomach pain.

Doctors from neighbouring primary health centres were called to the community health centre in Halli Mysore as the number of students taking ill was large. While the food and water samples have been sent to laboratory for tests, the results are expected in a couple of days. Circle inspector Gopal Nayak, BEO Yogesh visited the hospital. Yogesh advised staff to clean  the kitchen and vessels. He also told them to clean the tankers supplying water to the school.
