KORAPUT: Barely a week after four tribals died of food poisoning after consuming mango kernel soup, two more tribals died in a similar manner at

Talarangpani in Narayanpatna block.

Medical officer (Narayanpatna) Subrat Das, who visited the village on Tuesday, said, "We suspect Lachana Huika (35) and his wife, Tumbo Huika (30), were killed after consuming mango kernel soup, which serves as staple food for tribals here. But the soup gets affected by bacteria and fungus if it is kept for more than one day. It becomes poisonous and people die after consuming it."
