Girl taken ill after taking iron tablet

In yet another incident that forces many people to shy away from Tejswi, a minor is battling for life in Golaghat minutes after she was administered folic acid. The incident took place at No 1 Senchowa LP School where Ruprekha Bora started vomiting as soon as she consumed folic acid tablet. The Class I student could not speak and even move her tongue. The panic stricken teachers rushed her to the KK Civil Hospital for treatment. Local residents, in large number in the area are now opposing such drive fearing the rerun of the incident.
