AGRA: As many as ten students of government primary school in Kasganj district fell ill after consuming adulterated milk during midday meal hours.

The incident took place in Ashokpur village of Patiyali area on Wednesday afternoon, after which a team of local community health center doctors rushed to the school.

According to sources, after the students consumed the milk during their midday meal, many of them complained of stomach ache and started vomiting. The local health centre was immediately contacted for help following this.

Source claimed that the eastern part of Kasganj district such as Patiyali, Sahawar, etc, are notorious for synthetic/adulterated milk and other food items. The milk supplied to midday meal was bought from open market. There are high chances that milk served to students was adulterated.

Speaking to TOI, basic shiksha adhikari of Kasganj, Geeta Verma, said, "I'm on my way to primary school, but I have been informed that all students are now safe and stable."

"I don't believe it was milk that triggered the sudden illness in children, but it might be the weather, as it is raining a lot," she said.

This is not first incident of students falling ill after been given food items in schools.
