Thiruvananthapuram: The food safety department is suspecting foul play over the continuing incidents of food poisoning in GV Raja Sports School, Mylam. In order to rule out the angle, the department has decided to approach sports department to demand for a police inquiry into the issue.
The food safety department has suspended licence of the school’s kitchen on Tuesday night. Subsequently, the school announced leave for all students and suspended all functions until further notice.
Food safety commissioner M G Rajamanickam said that the department was suspecting foul play as cases of food poisoning occurred multiple times in the past years during June-July period. “The mess has been awarded to private parties on contract basis. We are not sure whether the food poisoning incidents happen due to some foul play. In order to clear the suspicion, we feel a police inquiry is necessary,” said Rajamanickam.
