Insects were found in a mid-day meal served to more than 60 children at Government Elementary School, Rupnagar village, in Abohar, Fazilka on Saturday. A private contractor supplies the meal to the school.
School head Krishan Kumar found the meal to be littered with worms and stones.
Kumar informed the sarpanch Mahinder Singh, who founds insects and soup floating in the pulses and rice.
Block development and panchayat officer Mahinder Kaur was then informed. She assured the villagers that a detailed report would be filed in this regard and strict action would be taken.
