Students of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Shillong have complained of insect-infested food served in the hostel mess.
The students alleged that the flies and worms were found in the breakfast served.
The students had shared the videos and pictures on Whatsapp group to air their complaint to the head of the hostel mess, who asked the students to be cautious as adults and to have basic etiquettes.
At first, the faculty as well as the hostel management tried to play down the issue until some students posted it on social media, which was then deleted after the institute’s management took note of the complaint.
NIFT, Shillong Director Shankar Kumar Jha told Highland Post that a meeting was held immediately after the complaint today, which was attended by the students, officers and mess contractors. He said the institute will address the concerns of the students and corrective measures will be taken.
