Fifteen deaths in fourteen days were reported from a village in Jharkhand's Palamu district, an official said Monday. A probe team sent to the village Khargada under Medininagar found that eight of the fifteen were suffering from cold, cough and fever while the remaining were suffering from other diseases, the official said quoting a test report.

 This follows similar deaths in Hazaribag district of the state where the administration has constituted a team to investigate 10 fatalities in a span of 12 days at village Khutra near Ichak Bazar.

A team of experts was sent to the said village by Deputy Commissioner Shashi Ranjan which found that all the diseased were above 40 years. As per the officer in charge of Haidarnagar Primary Health Centre, lack of awareness among people resulted in the deaths.
