Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi is one of the country's premier institutes, but it looks like one cannot expect "premier" food quality at the hostels here!
In a disgusting incident, Jayant Darokar, an IITD student found a dead mouse in his breakfast at the Aravali Boys Hostel mess inside the institute.
Sadly, several others had already consumed the meal before the shocking discovery.
Delhi: Dead mouse found in IIT hostel food
Not the first time, says a student
A student said: "This is not the first time that a dead animal has been found in our mess food. We have found cockroaches, ink, and honeybee inside our food. We had submitted complaints to our professors and the institute director but in vain."
Concerns raised over IIT Delhi's carelessness
Jayant found the dead rat inside the chutney in his South Indian Thali served at the mess.
The student then posted about the incident on the hostel's Facebook page along with a photograph.
While some students made fun of it, many others were concerned about the negligence of the hostel mess staff.
Around 400 students are reportedly living in the Aravali Boys Hostel.
