Abstract Out of 210 faecal samples collected from children below 5 years attending different hospitals in Jammu and exhibiting clinical signs of diarrhoea, 41.9\% samples were found positive for group A rotavirus by RNA-PAGE. Escherichia coli isolated in the study belonged to nine serogroups, out of which O69 was most frequent, being present in 12.38\% samples. E. coli serogroups well recognised as enteropathogens viz. O69, O20 and O153 were present in 27.6\% samples. Other bacterial pathogens associated with diarrhoea were present in 8.09\% samples, out of which Shigella spp. was found in 4.76\% samples followed by Salmonella spp. (2.38\%) and Pseudomonas spp. (0.95\%).
