"Today, 130 infants were administered polio drops, but they caught fever. People showed their willingness for this after two years. After this incident, I don't think people of my village will come forward to administer drugs to their infants again," said Sanjay Desai, the parent of a sick child.

Dr. S.L Desmukh said that final report would be given only after the matter is investigated.
