Chikkaballapura: Two women and ten others were hospitalised in Kolar after they allegedly consumed ‘prasada’ at a local temple in Chintamani town in Chikkaballapur district on Saturday, January 26. 

The deceased have been identified as Kavitha (28) and Saraswathamma (56). 

Among the ten, including two children and four women, who were admitted to hospitals in Chintamani and Kolar are Kavitha’s two children Ganavi and Sharani, her husband Gangadhar V and his father Venkataramappa. All of them are said to be out of danger and will be under observation, informed sources.

As per forensic reports, the food poisoning was caused because of the stale ingredients – Ghee and coconut – used in the preparation of the prasadam.

After consuming the prasadam, all of them started vomiting and complained of abdominal pain. A few of them had loose motions after which they were rushed to hospitals. Kavitha had severe vomiting and was dehydrated. She stopped responding to treatment in the morning and was declared dead.
