The deceased have been identified as Gopamma (35), Anitha (12), Shanta (20) and Papanna (50), while others are yet to be identified. Five died in a hospital in Kollegal while two others died in a Mysuru hospital.

One of the devotees said that the food smelt like kerosene. People who consumed the food were frothing from their mouth and vomiting. Many others, who were waiting for food, did not consume it after seeing the people’s condition and their lives were saved.

Meanwhile a district official said that it is suspected that toxic substance has been mixed in the food and samples have been sent to the lab for testing.

Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy who has expressed his shock has assured assistance to all those who have fallen ill.

Chamarajanagara DC BB Cauvery, SP Dharmendra Kumar Meena have visited the patients in the hospital. Hanur police are probing the incident. Two people are detained in connection with the case.

    Why not? When your MP Shobha links everything to majority-minority, why I should not bring majority-minority here? This is the handiwork of BJP supported goons and we have seen this before. Have you not seen pork head being placed at Masjid gate and cow head on temple gate? Is this not done by BJP goons to create communal unrest? In Kerala, BJP trying to create rift among hindus by poking their dirty nose into Shabarimala issue. So, BJP hand is everywhere where there are communal issues.

    This news item is not any politician speech or promise or any other regular topic to take pot shots, bring cows ,bring minority what not. But yes, the souls with loads of pride are doing it here. i have only pity for their blind confidence that they dont have an expiration date.. The karma has not spared anyone.. esp those who take sadistic pleasure on innocent people's death.

    In a temple near our house, there was a meal for every one for some festival. The people who come there for meals are many and hence, they cook in very large pots. One time, while eating payasam, a very known religious person found a fish in his payasam. He, just kept it aside and did not tell anybody, because he did not want to disturb the peace. Later, it was found out that when they brought the water in the night from a stream nearby, the fish was there in that water.

    Very Sad. Here after, the cooks and the in-charge should eat the same food half-an-hour before. Any deliberate poisoning is a criminal act.

    There is no question of minority here whatsoever. No limit to imagination. Rivalry is very intense in these parts of bailuseeme unlike coast. People chop each other up, chop rivals fields clean of crops, undertake soccery or poison. Demons in disguise of humans. Innocent cattle grazers, children & passerby's lost lives for nothing.
