Hyderabad: The GHMC officials issued a fine of Rs 5000 to Raja Vari Ruchulu hotel which is located in Kukatpally for negligence.

According to reports, Srinivas Bellam, a resident of Kukatpally had complained that he had ordered chicken biryani and curd rice on January 15 from the hotel through Zomato.

“While eating biryani, I felt something odd in my mouth. When I removed it, I realized it was a piece of iron wire,” Srinivas said.

He then took a picture of that and shared it on twitter to highlight the issue.

GHMC zonal commissioner of Kukatpally, V Mamatha, took note of the incident shared on twitter and sent a team to the restaurant to inspect its premises and issued a fine of Rs5000 for the lapse.

He also informed the Zomato team about the incident. “The food delivery team apologized and offered him a discount coupon,” he said. Earlier this month, the Telangana High Court had pulled up the state government and pointed out that it had only 25 Food Safety Officers (FSOs) for the whole state with a population of nearly four crores.
