Nine students of a government school in New Delhi were taken ill on Thursday after consuming a mid-day meal which allegedly had a dead rat in it.
The meal was served at a Government Boys' Senior Secondary School in the Deoli area. The students were rushed to Madan Mohan Malviya Hospital.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia visited the students at the hospital. He took to Twitter to slam those responsible for the incident.

मिड डे मील सप्लायर के खिलाफ FIR करा रहे हैं। उसे ब्लैक लिस्ट भी करेंगे। बच्चो के मामले में इतनी बड़ी लापरवाही बर्दाश्त नहीं की जाएगी।— Manish Sisodia (@msisodia) February 16, 2017
He said that an FIR would be lodged against the mid-day meal supplier and that the accused would be blacklisted.
Police officials when contacted said they are aware of the issue but no formal complaint has been received yet.
