Bihar: 93 students fall sick after mid-day meal consumption

At least 93 students fell ill after consuming a mid-day meal at a government school in Bihar’s Banka district, an official said.

The students have claimed that a dead lizard was mixed in the meal. But officials have denied the allegation. “After learning of the incident, a Block Development Officer was immediately sent to conduct af probe. There was no lizard in the mid-day meal. Every time a mid-day meal is prepared in the school, the teachers and the cook eat it first before it is served to students,” Banka District Magistrate Anshul Kumar said.
