Worms found in food served to coronavirus patients

‘Arogya Sahayya Samiti’ demands investigation and action against the concerned

Pune (Maharashtra)-‘An isolation centre has been set up in a hostel for backward-class at Moshi in Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation area. The ‘Tab Kitchen’, an organisation that supplies food to patients at the site, was allowed to do so
even though it did not have a license for it. Worms were found in the food supplied
by ‘Tab Kitchen’. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) imposed a fine
of only Rs. 11,000 on ‘Tab Kitchen’ and revoked its contract.
According to provisions of the law, a fine of Rs. 5 lakh should have been imposed, and the director of ‘Tab Kitchen’ was to be imprisoned for 6 months. Despite such a
serious incident, why has such a mild action been taken, is a question raised by Mr. Chaitanya Tagade of ‘Arogya Sahayya Samiti’. The ‘Arogya Sahayya Samiti’ submitted
a representation on this to BM Thakur (Assistant Commissioner of FDA, Pune)
and Shravan Hardikar (Municipal Commissioner of Pune Corporation) and handed over to Ajit Pawar (Additional Commissioner) on 28th October
