40 People in Orissa Taken Ill After Consuming Poisoned Fish

Kendrapada: At least 40 people including nine children fell ill after consuming poisoned dead fish// from a pond in Orissa's Kendrapada district, police said Friday.

Residents of Dashipur village, some 45 km from the district headquarters of Kendrapada and 70 km from the state capital, Bhubaneswar, brought fish from their village pond and fell ill after consuming fish curry Thursday, office-in-charge of the local Aul police station Subash Chandra Panda told IANS.

"The village pond was leased out to one Keshava Mohanty, a villager, for two years in 2005. Last Wednesday, he tried to catch the fish from the pond but was prevented by some villagers as the lease period had been over some three months ago, the villagers alleged.

On that night, Mohanty's supporters allegedly poured poison in the pond. As a result almost all the fish died, according to a villager Vivekananda Das.

All the ill were admitted to the local government health centre and conditions of at least six was stated to be serious.

A medical team from the district headquarters of Kendrapada rushed to the spot to test the remaining fish and check the condition of people who ate the fish curry.

The villagers have lodged complaints with the local police, Panda said. We are investigating the matter, he added.
