Two chefs had been arrested in connection with the incident where three persons died and another 203 were hospitalized due to suspected food poisoning at a ceremony held in Wanagamuwa Jumma Mosque in Eragama, Ampara last Wednesday, Police said.

The suspects, who were produced before the Ampara Magistrate, were released on two sureties of Rs. 200,000 each yesterday.

However, the suspects were remanded as they failed to fulfil the bail condition.

Three persons were died during the annual festival of the mosque which was held on April 5. About 5,000 people had attended the ceremony.

    Why not telling what the food is? People like to know.

    What stupid thing to arrest the cooks. It highlights the fact these people are not trainec properly, about food handling.The authorities should put in more resources , to inspect these events, and make the food handlers aware of their responsibilities.This incidient seems to me a food poisoining due to Sallomonella food poisioning or Listeria food poisoining.Basic food handling training is needed.Release the two innocent workers at this function.

    Did they torture cattle to kill them due to religious beliefs? Is this the punishment by God for torturing?

    Are you the president to request the courts to release them?

    What can the chefs do - eat before serving ??Actually Police should arrest organisers and the dry rations supplier/purchaser and owner of outlet from where stuff bought - all the way up the lne - not the poor chef at end of line..
