Video: Rats Dine-in Style At MP Station's IRCTC Stall

Rats were seen infecting food placed at a stall in the Itarsi Junction railway station in Madhya Pradesh. Visuals from the site surfaced online showing how the pesky rodent walked through the plate filled with some snacks and a container placed on the ground. The video showing the rats ‘enjoying’ their meal prepared and displayed at the IRCTC stall for train passengers has gone viral on social media, raising concerns about the quality of food made available on the premises.

X user shares video, tags rail officials

Meanwhile, the X user uploaded the clip online with a hilarious punch drawing the attention of rail authorities. He captioned the social media post to read, “Rats on IRCTC food Inspection Duty.” The now-viral footage which runs less than a minute showed how rats ‘inspected’ or stepped into the food preparations and the containers when there was no human around. The stall staff weren’t visible in the clip to look into the matter when the unwanted guests entered the premises to enjoy some food from the rail menu.

Railway authorities respond

Responding to the video post, on Sunday, the Railway Seva handle informed that the incident is being looked into and necessary action would follow from the Bhopal Division of the West Central Railway. On this note, the Divisional Railway Manager (DRM) of the said division mentioned that the “matter is being notified to concerned officials” for prompt action.
