JAIPUR: In yet another incident of food poisoning, 100 policemen fell ill after eating stale food. The men were deployed at Hindaun town, during the

Gujjar Mahapadav, in Karauli district. After preliminary treatment at a local dispensary on Friday, a team of doctors and compounders have been deputed by the district collector to look after them.

Block medical officer Ram Lal Meena said the policemen were taken ill after they ate stale food and complained of stomachache and vomitting. While most policemen were staying at Kheda village, a few lived in the adjoining villages. However, a doctor on duty said food cannot be the sole reason behind so many policemen falling ill. They are looking for other possibilities.
