However, he saw the WhatsApp message at 10.30 pm. the food had been thrown out without samples being collected for examination and the other students had been given freshly cooked food, Soni told PTI.

A medical team visited the hostel on Friday and screened the 30 girls. Two of the girls who had vomited were cleared while the student who was discharged from hospital was advised admission for observation, Soni added.

He added that the food safety team collected samples of raw food items and water from the hostel on Friday and a probe was underway. Circle Inspector at Jawahar Nagar police station Vasudev confirmed that the food the girls had eaten was thrown out and no sample was collected.
