Mangalore, Jun 11: All the children who developed symptoms of food poisoning after having breakfast in a Muslim residential school in Natekal near Ullal on Tuesday June 9, have been recovering. At present, only seven continue to be treated in the hospital.

About 70 students had taken ill after having food on Tuesday morning. Out of them, 23 had been admitted into a hospital in Derlakatte as in-patients. 16 students have since been discharged.

The parents of all the students of the residential school have taken their wards home. A three-day holiday has been declared for the school. The lab report on the food and water of the new tube well, which have been sent for testing, is awaited.

MLC Kota Srinivas Poojary visited the school on Wednesday and inspected the facilities. He enquired about the problems with the head mistress and parents and promised to provide new building and initiate remedial measures. Several BJP leaders accompanied him. Some of the parents expressed their anger at the poor facilities in the school and said, they would send their children to school only after all the problems are sorted out.
