WARANGAL: Students of Scheduled Tribes’ Welfare Hostel in Wardhannapet mandal of Warangal district, who had been admitted two days ago in Primary Health Centre, Wardhannapet, and MGH Hospital in Warangal after they fell ill due to food poisoning, have been discharged from their respective hospitals on Wednesday.

Around 60 students of the ST hostel suffered food poisoning as a lizard had fallen in the food that had been served to them for dinner on Monday, September 5.

Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, MGM Hospital superintendent Dr. V. Chandrasekhar said all 13 students admitted to their hospital have recovered and have been discharged. Their parents have been asked to bring them back to the hospital after two days for a re-check.

Wardhannapet PHC medical superintendent Dr. Swamy told DC that following prompt treatment on Monday night, 21 students admitted to the health centre became stable by Tuesday morning. However, they had been kept at the PHC under observation. They left for their homes on Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, after learning that their hostel warden Jyothi had been suspended and was leaving the hostel, students pleaded with her not to leave the hostel. They say the warden cannot be suspended for the mistake of the cook. They urged authorities to revoke her suspension.
