Forty-seven doctors at government-run Sion hospital on Friday fell sick after eating sweets during the Independence Day celebration.

Dean of the hospital, Dr Avinash Supe, said the sweets had been bought from a shop in nearby Koliwada area.

"After the flag-hoisting and other ceremonies, the doctors thought of getting some sweets to end the celebrations. But immediately after eating, many of them started feeling uneasy while some vomited. We had to immediately admit them," Dr Supe told PTI.

Those admitted included 24 women.

"They are now stable and we will be discharging them soon," Dr Supe added.
