3 fall sick after taking vitamin used for crops

At least three people including a girl fell sick after taking a vitamin used for crops at Damardarpur village under Ghoraghat upazila in Dinajpur district on Thursday.
They were identified as Azizar Rahman, 40, Dipzol Ali, 17, and Delwara Begum, 15.
Azizar is being treated at Ghoraghat Health Complex where the doctors have described his condition as critical.
Villagers said Azizar bought Crop Plus, a product of Media Agro Marketing Company Ltd, from a local grocery shop for his physical weakness.
After the intake of vitamin, the three started complaining of severe pain in the stomach and suffered from acute diarrhoea.
Later they were taken to Ghoraghat hospital where the doctors said it was a case of severe bacterial infection caused by the consumption of some bad quality milk product.
When contacted, Ripon, owner of the shop, admitted that he had sold the vitamin.
Villagers alleged that Ripon has been selling agro-farming products including pesticides alongside other grocery products.
