At least 22 schoolchildren died in northeastern India after eating free school lunches that contained a poison. More than 25 others were hospitalized after ingesting an insecticide called organophosphorus that was in the food. It's a nerve agent related to sarin gas, which is used in chemical warfare. Exposure to a high dose can cause an irregular heartbeat, difficulty breathing, paralysis and seizures. Shahi told CNN the school's cook had questioned the quality of the oil she was being asked to use but was overruled by the head teacher. He said: "The information which has come to me indeed suggests that the headmistress was told by the cook that medium of cooking was not proper, and she suspected the quality of the oil. But the headmistress rebuked her, and chastised the children, and forced them to continue the meal." CNN hasn't been able to contact the headmistress.
