At least nine female students of a nursing college in Habiganj fell sick on Friday due to food poisoning.
All the nine students of Habiganj Nursing Institute are now undergoing treatment at Habiganj Sadar Hospital.
A number of guardians of the victims alleged that after having their lunch, provided by the institution, at around 3:00pm on Friday, the girls started vomiting and also complained of abdominal pain.
The authorities of the nursing institute often supply low quality food to the students, said Nusrat Jahan, a student of the institute, adding that earlier they found ants and flies in their food on different occasions.
Nusrat also demanded a probe body to investigate the incident.
