TN: Midnight mehendi rush at hospitals - IBN South - IBN Tamil Nadu - ibnlive

The mehendi rumours that did the rounds on Sunday night left scores of women thronging government hospitals across the State.

The four hospitals alone together saw about 500 such women seeking treatment, out of which hardly 10 developed very minimum allergies such as rashes and itching.

In Vellore, District Collector Ajay Yadav, who had personally supervised the rush in hospitals, said that the source of rumour was being investigated. The situation however was brought under control very quickly by the doctors, local religious leaders, MLAs and police, he added.

Meanwhile, Vaniyambadi police arrested five persons for spreading rumours that two persons had died due to poisonous mehendi and damaging public properties. The accused pelted stones at the ambulances stationed near the GH at Vaniyambadi and damaged the windshield of two ambulances.

Probably, a case of the odd incident leading to widespread rumours and panic.
