Students of the Aashram Paddati Vidyalaya undergo abdominal pain and started vomiting after which they were admitted to a local hospital.
"All the 63 students at the hospital are stable now. Other 42 students have also been examined. We seized samples of biscuits on the complaint of students and found out they were expired. The food store in the school has been sealed. Strict action will be taken against defaulters," said a district administration official person.
