Kasargod: A ten-member Central expert team on Sunday
visited the district to study on the health status of people
residing in the endosulfan pesticide affected areas.

The team was led by Dr Viswa Mohan Katoch, ICMR Director
General.

The team, which had visited Kasargod sometime back, during
their second visit today held talks with the pesticide
affected people in Perla, Padre and Muliyar areas.

Katoch said they would submit their report to the Centre at
the earliest after reaching Delhi.

Last month a three-member team including Dr Daliwal,
Scientist, ICMR, had come to Kozhikode and analysed the study
reports of Calicut Medical College Hospital, whose experts had
carried out a study on the health status of people residing in
the endosulfan affected areas in Kasargod.
