Thirteen girl students of Government High School Laroka in Rajouri district were hospitalized on Friday after suspected food poisoning.

Reports said the students of class 9 began to experience symptoms of food poisoning at about 11:30 am, such as nausea and dysentery, while they were studying in their classroom.

The school staff and locals rushed the girl students to Sub District Hospital Nowshera, where they are receiving treatment.
