Updated 21 Jul 2018 10:33 AM

60 inmates of Byculla women's prison here were hospitalised this morning after they fell ill, with officials suspecting that food poisoning, contaminated water or a medicine reaction could be the reason behind the illness.
An anti-viral medicine was administered to all prison inmates and staff yesterday, after which some prisoners had complained of uneasiness, a top prison official said.
The prime accused in the Sheena Bora murder case, Indrani Mukerjea, who is lodged in the same prison, was not among those admitted to the hospital, jail officials said.
Earlier in the day, the dean of the state-run J J Hospital, Mukund Tayade, said all those admitted complained of vomiting, nausea and loose motions.
