On the other hand, the relatives of the dead persons said that their family members had died due to the outbreak of vomiting and diarrhoea in the village.

CMHO Dr Yadav said that all the serious patients were referred to the hospitals in Vijaypur and Morena. The remaining patients were being treated in the village itself.
