After a dead lizard was found in a meal served on the train, RK Caterers, the biggest private food vendor in Indian Railways, is set to lose Poorva Express’ contract.

The company had lost the contract for Sealdah Rajdhani earlier this year. The incident happened on board the Poorva Express when a passenger found the animal covered with rice after taking a few bites from the vegetarian biryani he had ordered on his journey.

After the incident, Kishor Kumar, divisional railway manager (DRM) of Danapur and other officials took stock of the issue, inquired about the health of the passenger and gave him the requisite medicines. The passenger took to Twitter to file a complaint with the union railway minister, Suresh Prabhu. He later told the media that he was provided medicines quite late.

“The thing which I regret the most is that I was given medicines really late. I was not given any medication for about four hours”, said the passenger.

DRM Kishor Kumar assured a detailed inquiry into the case. “It is a very unfortunate incident. A detailed inquiry would be conducted in the case and necessary action would be taken,” Kumar was quoted as saying by ANI.

Kumar added that the railway department’s main concern was the health of the passengers. “Our concern was the health of all the passengers. All the passengers were attended and it was ensured that the passengers were given the necessary health treatment,” he added.
