New Delhi: A group of pilgrims travelling from Jharkhand to Uttar Pradesh found a lizard in the veg biryani served to them on the Howrah-Delhi Poorva Express Train.

Soon after the reptile was noticed, a passenger tweeted it out to Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu and claimed that one of the other passenger had fallen ill.

This comes just days after the Comptroller and auditor general (CAG) submitted a report in Parliament stating that the food on trains in India was unfit for human consumption.

“During the joint inspection of 74 stations and 80 trains... audit noticed that cleanliness and hygiene were not being maintained at catering units at stations and in trains. Unpurified water straight from the tap was used in preparation of beverages, waste bins were not found covered, not emptied regularly and not washed, food stuff were not covered to protect them from flies, insects and dust, rats and cockroaches were found in the train etc.,” the report said.

Reacting to the CAG report, the Ministry of Railways had claimed on Sunday that the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd (IRCTC) would be forming a new catering policy by unbundling the current services on trains.
