Kishanlal's two children, who were yet to be tested for dengue, too were suffering from high fever.

Khargone health officials, were, however reluctant to admit the prevalence of dengue in the district.

"Three persons belonging to the district are suspected to be suffering from dengue. Their blood samples have been sent to the National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune, and anything could be said with authentication only after the detailed report is received," said Khargone chief medical officer B. Bhanke.
