Fifty persons have fallen sick after consuming prasad during a feast at Piple of Belkotgadhi municipality-5 in Newakot district. Among them, 10 in critical condition have been taken to Kathmandu for treatment. 

The people attending the shraddha (a feast organized during the worship to the dead family member) at local Bhoj Bahaur Alemagar's home, began suffering from vomiting, diarrhoea and fever since they consumed prasad, a special meal prepared for shraddha, two days back. 

As their health did not improve during the treatment at the local health facilities, they were taken to the Kathmandu hospitals for better treatment, said Anant Nepal, Chairman at Ward No 5.
