According to a series of posts on X (formerly Twitter), it has been noted that this isn’t the first time that students in this Hyderabad university found suspicious things in their food. A few days back, a student found a dead insect in the food served to him. Before that, students also found bugs inside some fried food that was served in the university mess.

According to a Times of India report from June 30, the Telangana Food and Safety department raided the university mess. They found rats and unhygienic practices in the mess kitchen and even found rotten food there. They had then issued a notice against them. But it seems like not much has changed since.

Here’s what netizens had to say about this whole matter.

Of course, there were some Ratatouille references in the comments as well!

This is a really concerning matter. Student’s health is no joke and the university authorities need to take some actions to ensure proper nutrition and hygiene in the mess. Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments section.
