Nine students at a government school in Delhi have been hospitalised after they consumed a midday meal in which a dead rat was allegedly found.

"A rat was found in the meal my son had consumed yesterday, such negligence is not acceptable," said the mother of one of the students hospitalised.

Meanwhile, Congress' Kiran Walia said, "Strict supervision must be done on cleanliness, hygiene during food preparation. An enquiry should be ordered and nobody at fault should be spared."

More details awaited. -- ANI
