Later speaking to the media, the ZP Chief Executive Officer said all precautions need to be taken to ensure that the food served to students as part of mid-day meal programme was safe and hygienic. She also stated that a probe would be done into the case of tracing dead rat in the sambar of mid-day meal supplied to the school by ISKCON. The probe report would be sent to the government , she added.

Mid-Day Meal scheme officer Manjula, MA Nataraj, Suratkal inspector, were also present.

However, ISKCON authorities have maintained that  they are not at fault and there is no chance of a rat falling into the sambar vessel as otherwise it would have melted as the food is cooked above 100 degree temperature.ZP-CEO1jpg
