The residents of Ningli and its adjoining villages in north Kashmir's
Sopore [also sometimes Sopur] have been visiting hospitals near and
far after the outbreak of a mysterious disease. More than 50 families
in the village show symptoms of an illness that doctors say is a minor
infection. Reports reaching GNS said the villagers of Tarzoo, Ningli
and its adjoining areas are finding it hard to tackle the crisis, as
more and more children, men and women are affected by the mysterious
disease. "We have been badly hit by this mysterious disease, and
authorities are not paying any heed towards our plight," one of the
victims, Sara Begum, told GNS.

The district administration has dispatched a team of doctors to the
area to take stock of the situation, but there was no confirmation
about the nature of the disease. However, doctor present there told
GNS that this is a "minor infection" that has hit the area.

"I have fallen ill since Wednesday evening. It started with headache
and gradually developed into body ache and continuous vomiting.
[Although] I consulted the doctors, [they have yet] to find out the
reason," another patient said. Meanwhile, BMO Sopore Mohammad Sami
told GNS that people need not panic. "It was just a case of
infection," he said. "The whole area is being constantly monitored, as
there is nothing to worry as everything is under control," the BMO
added.
