District Magistrate Mohammad Sohail said all those who took the 'prasad' complained of nausea, vomiting and stomach ache, and have been admitted to the Sadar hospital for treatment. They were out of danger, he said.

Sohail said the incident could have been due to food poisoning. Local residents had observed eight day 'Ashtyam' puja and people had taken 'prasad', which was offered on the first day of the puja that led to the incident.
