Jaipur: Over 100 people have been hospitalised in Rajasthan's Dungarpur district after they fell ill apparently due to contaminated drinking water, officials said on Monday.
Those taken ill complained of vomiting and diarrhoea, Dungapur Chief Medical and Health Officer Mahendra Kumar Parmar said. There were four children among those who were admitted at the hospital on Sunday.
Parmar said the water apparently got contaminated as the district is witnessing heavy rainfall over the last two days and the pipe got damaged during cable laying work of a telecom company. He said those under treatment are recuperating and a sample of contaminated water has been sent for testing.(This story has not been edited by News18 staff and is published from a syndicated news agency feed)
