Gaya (Bihar), 9 July : Six children in Bihar’s Gaya district are suspected to have died of Acute Encephalitis (AES) in a week, an official said on Tuesday.
Of the 23 children admitted to Anugrah Narayan Magadh Medical College and Hospital (ANMCH) from July 2 till date, six have died, a health officer said here.
ANMCH Superintendent V.K. Prasad told IANS that the deaths were suspected to be caused by AES. “However, nothing is formed as of now as the reports are still awaited.”
Four children suspected to be suffering from AES were in critical condition, Prasad said.
More than 160 children died from AES in Muzaffarpur and surrounding districts of Bihar last month. Most of the dead children were under the age of seven years.
According to the Bihar State Health Department, more than 700 children have been affected by AES this time in 20 of the 38 districts.

Modi thanks Imran for timely opening of Kartarpur corridor
PM Modi flags off 1st pilgrimage to Kartarpur Sahib
Dera Baba Nanak, Nov 9 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday thanked his Pakistan counterpart Imran Khan for respecting the sentiments of India as he flagged off the first pilgrimage to Darbar Sahib in Pakistan after inaugurating the Kartarpur Corridor here.
In the first-of its-kind occasion in seven decades, Modi sent the first lot of 500 pilgrims to visit Darbar Sahib, also called Kartarpur Sahib, the last resting place of first Sikh Guru Nanak Dev, in Narowal district in Pakistan’s Punjab province.
“Visit to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib will become easy now,” Modi said at the Kartarpur Corridor inauguration event before opening the state-of-the-art Integrated Check Post for the corridor that connects Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Punjab’s Gurdaspur district with the historic Kartarpur Sahib Gurdwara across the border in Pakistan. The corridor was inaugurated ahead of the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of Sikhism, which falls on November 12.
“I thank all who have been associated with the construction of the corridor,” Modi said, adding that he also thanked “Imran Khan for understanding Indian sentiments with respect to the Kartarpur Corridor and worked in that direction within the timeframe”.
Donning a saffron turban, Modi, in his half-an-hour address at the function organised by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), said the corridor and the Integrated Check Post would serve thousands of devotees daily.
“It is my honour to have inaugurated the corridor today. Guru Nanak’s teachings are being translated into various languages so that the next generation can also be enriched by them. We must vow to imbibe the preachings of Guru Nanak, which are still relevant,” Modi, who was bestowed with the ‘Kaumi Seva Puraskar’ by the SGPC, said.
“Every Sikh Guru, starting from Guru Nanak to Guru Gobind Singh, has made efforts for the unity, defence and security of India. It is this tradition which has been carried forward by the Sikhs in the Independence struggle and thereafter in protecting the country,” the Prime Minister said.
Expressing gratitude to UNESCO for helping in spreading the message of Guru Nanak Dev, Modi said that after the abrogation of Article 370, Sikh families in Jammu and Kashmir could also exercise rights like other Sikhs across the country to visit Kartarpur Sahib.
