Bathinda :Over 100 children, majority of them belonging to slum areas of Rampura town, fell ill on Sunday evening after they consumed sweet milk served in a school run by a charitable trust. The children complaining of vomiting and diarrhea were rushed to the Civil Hospital, Rampura, with the assistance of Sahara Group, an NGO working for social welfare. Acting upon the report, a team of health officials from Bathinda also visited the hospital and the school. In the absence of any formal complaint, the police have not yet initiated any action in this case. According to information, about a year back a social group of Rampura, Durga Sewak Dal, had opened a charitable school for poor children, Jai Shakti Maa Vaishnu Vidya Mandir, where they were being taught without any fee. It was the first anniversary of the school and the management had organised a function to celebrate the occasion on Sunday, where not only the children enrolled with the school but many others were also present. During the function, the children were served with the sweet milk. Once they all returned home, many among them started complaining of stomach ache and vomiting. As the number of children falling ill was too high, the Sahara Group also swung into action.

All ill students were admitted to the Civil Hospital, where doctors administered medicines to them. Realising the improvement in the health condition of the children the doctors started discharging them in night itself. The school management claimed to be unaware of the cause of incident as they mentioned that the milk was supplied by a private dairy owner, whose milk was consumed at various households but no one came up with the similar complaint. They assured proper assistance to health team to investigate the cause of incident.
