At least twelve students have fallen ill, six of them seriously, after consuming mid-day meal at Chamandi primary school in Bihar's Arwal district on Wednesday barely a fortnight after the midday meal incident in Chhapra, official sources said.       

Sub Divisional Officer (SDO) Sateyndra Kumar, who rushed to the school after getting information about the incident, said six students in a serious condition have been rushed to Jehanabad district hospital while the others were taken to a local health centre.

Meanwhile, irate villagers gathered at the school and protested against the management for the incident.      

The incident has come close on the heels following the death of 23 children after eating poisonous mid-day meal in a school at Dharmasati Gandaman village in Chhapra on July 16.
