Faridabad: In a shocking incident, a baby snake, also known as a `snakelet`, was found in the mid-day meal served to students of a government school at Faridabad in Haryana.
Two teachers and six students of the Government Girls’ Senior Secondary School in NIT-2 complained of nausea after consuming the food. They were admitted to a hospital and subsequently discharged.
When the principal and other teachers were tasting the food, they spotted the snakelet. Albeit they immediately intimated the other students to not consume the meal, but unfortunately some students had already eaten portions of it.
The students were taken aback upon discovering the reptile in their food. They admitted that they often got a `stale smell` from the food generally, but this was something which was terrifying for them.
Braj Bala, the school`s principal, informed about the same to higher officials and Iskcon food relief foundation, the organisation supplying mid-day meals.
The other schools, where the same food was supplied, were also apprised of the same.
