Murege Swamy, who attended the ceremony, said: “They were giving us some offerings at the temple. It had a weird smell. When we asked what that was, they told us it is because of leaves in the offering.”

“As soon as we ate that, me and my friends felt a sharp pain in our stomachs and started puking,” Swamy said.

Sangeeta, who also attended, said she felt lucky she didn’t eat anything at the temple, adding: “”Only a few were OK, but everyone else was vomiting immediately.”
