Food Poisoning Affects 90 Passengers on Train Headed to Gujarat

Around 90 passengers on a chartered ‘Bharat Gaurav’ train,  route from Chennai to Palitana for a religious event, reportedly suffered from food poisoning between Solapur and Pune.

The incident prompted a halt at Pune railway station in Maharashtra on Tuesday evening. The affected passengers complained of symptoms like nausea, loose motions, and headache.

The group had privately arranged the food, which was prepared in the train’s pantry car, not supplied by the Railways or IRCTC. Railway officials acted promptly, with a team of doctors attending to the passengers at Pune station.
