Warangal: In a bizarre case, a man found a dead rat in his curry while he was having his meal at a reputed tiffin centre in the district.

The man identified as Ramesh ordered a meal on Tuesday afternoon at a tiffin centre for which he was offered brinjal curry with rice. When he began eating Ramesh found a dead rat in the curry which he pulled by its tail and showed to the hotel management. Other customers having their food at the tiffin centre were shocked to see the dead rat.

When Ramesh sought an explanation from the management, they stared in disbelief and speechless. He then wrapped the rat in a plastic cover and walked out of the hotel.

Meanwhile, a video of the dead rat in brinjal curry has gone viral on social media and the municipal authorities seized the hotel kitchen. "The kitchen of the hotel is in hygienic condition but we sealed it for now... we took the samples of the curry and sent it for lab testing," GWMC health officer Raja Reddy said adding that strict action will be taken based on the reports.

The officer also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on the hotel.
