Eighty-six students fell ill after allegedly eating the mid-day meal served at a government school in Palghar district. The students were rushed to local hospital after they developed symptoms of food poisoning.
Dr Rajendra Kelkar, additional civil surgeon, who was present at the hospital, said, “All the students are now stable. However, they would remain under observation till Friday morning.”
“This is a serious matter. We will start an inquiry at the school about the meal that was provided to the children,” said a senior government official.
