BERHAMPUR: Panic gripped Taptapani Sevashram under Sanakhemundi block in Ganjam district after two girl inmates suffered from diarrhoea on Thursday.
The girls complained of loose motion and vomiting. They were later admitted to Digapahandi hospital from where one has been shifted to MKCGMCH.
Though the reason behind the spread of the infection is not yet ascertained, doctors apprehend consumption of contaminated water.
