Ugly find ruins Parliament reporters’ lunch


A long piece of thread, used in gunny sacks, was found in a sprat curry served as a part of the lunch for journalists covering Parliament sessions on Friday (23).

A journalist found the thread in his sprat curry and had immediately handed it over to the head of the Parliament Canteen, while lodging a complaint to that effect.

A few journalists at the canteen had stopped their meals following the unpleasant find.

The journalists also mentioned that some of the curries had been stale.

Meanwhile, two Police officers attached to the security of Parliament Complex fell sick on Thursday (22), after eating a contaminated fish curry at the canteen.
