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.
One of the teachers of the institution, on condition of anonymity, said no such incident ever happened before, adding that they will look into the matter.
One of the victims from the food poisoning Shahina Akther Liza said after nearly three hours of taking her lunch she started vomiting and having a severe stomach pain.
The girl fell sick as the food they took might have been poisonous, Medical Officer of the hospital Debasish Biswas said, adding that they are out of danger now.
