'Death Cap' mushrooms behind death of six in Meghalaya

The poisonous mushrooms that killed six people at a remote village in Meghalaya's West Jaintia Hills district have been identified as Amanita phalloides, commonly known as the 'Death Cap', a senior official said on Saturday. Six people, including a 14-year-old girl, of Lamin village along the India-Bangladesh border in Amlarem civil sub-division, died after consuming wild mushrooms they collected from a nearby forest late last month.
