The children were hospitalized after complaining of nausea and breathlessness. Most of the children are stable, with some of them admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). There are reports that the incident was caused after the children played with chemically tainted colours.
A hospital source has been quoted as saying, "Altogether 144 cases of colour poisoning came to the hospital and over 50 people who have been affected the most, have been admitted."
More details awaited.
