Toll rises to 4 in the school incident

Ramesh M, who worked as a watchman at Vidya Varidhi International School, Tumakuru, and had taken ill after eating dinner at the hostel dining hall on March 8, died of cardiac arrest at Tumakuru district government hospital on Sunday morning.

Lab report awaited

This brings the death toll to four — three students of the private residential school, who also ate the same meal and died on March 9.

The police, who suspect food poisoning to be the cause, are waiting for the forensic lab reports.
