Thiruvananthapuram : At least 400 CRPF jawans posted at the Pallipuram unit in the capital city suburbs were taken ill reportedly due to food poisoning on Saturday.

An enquiry has been ordered in the case, and a sample has been taken for investigation.

While 200 of them have been admitted at the Medical College hospital, the rest have been admitted at a hospital near the unit.

The jawans have been admitted to various hospitals across the city with complaints of upset stomachs and vomiting.

109 jawans have been placed under observation at the Government Medical College in Thiruvananthapuram where state health Minister KK Shylaja paid a visit last night.

"The condition of four was a bit serious when they arrived here, but they have quickly responded to the treatment," the hospital superintendent said.
