A minor died while 25 others fell ill after eating meat of a dead Jhopke (cross of yak and cow) at Pulu VDC in Mugu district on Saturday, said police.

The exact number of the dead and ill people is yet to be ascertained, as the VDC is remote and beyond telephone access, according to police.

Meanwhile, the District Health Office (DHO), Mugu has sent a medical team to the VDC, DHO sources said.  

It may be noted that five people had died in similar circumstance after consuming meat of a dead animal last year.
