 Pakistani Police Recruits Get Food Poisoning
In Pakistan's port city of Karachi, nearly 250 police recruits suffered food poisoning, says report.

The 244 sick police recruits were taken to Jinnah Hospital here, Geo News reported.


Simi Jamal, an official, said over 100 trainee police personnel have been discharged after an improvement in their condition.

The mass food-poisoning took place at Razzakabad Police Training Centre. Hundreds of trainees, who had eaten the food provided by their mess, fell ill. Most of the recruits started throwing up, causing severe dehydration.
