“We have received information that about 26 students were taken ill after consuming mid-day meal. They have been taken to Satyawadi Raja Harish Chandra Hospital,” a senior police official said.

Hospital authorities said the children had complained of abdominal pain but they are now stable. 

“All students are stable and likely to be discharged soon,” a senior doctor said.
