KOLKATA: If you live in or around Prince Anwar Shah Road, Ghulam Mohammed Shah Road, Golf Green, Jadavpur or Tollygunge and drink water drawn from tube-wells, better go for an arsenic poisoning test.

Traces of arsenic have been found in the urine samples of scores of multi-storey residents of the areas mentioned. Scores of others have reported for treatment at Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) clinics in recent weeks with arsenic-triggered lesions, but have been turned away, for the medics are not trained to identify arsenic poisoning.
