A week after the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) of India said that food served by Indian Railways to its passengers is unfit for consumption, a passenger of Poorva Express found a lizard in the biryani served to him.

The incident came to light soon after the passenger complained about the lizard to the Railway Minister Suresh Parbhu on his Twitter handle.

Commenting on the matter, the passenger said, “Ordered food in Mokama and found this. I complained to the TTE, canteen manager, and tweeted it to the railway minister.” He added that medicine was also given late.

After the tweet, DRM Kanpur division took its cognizance and an action was taken in the matter.

Kishor Kumar of DRM Danapur Division said, “A check-up was done in Danapur Division and he was given medicine. Appropriate action will be taken after investigation.”

The incident comes to light just a week after the Railways were rapped in a report by CAG over the quality of food being served in trains.
