Shared the picture of the food on social media
A user named Vidhit Varshney wrote on Twitter, “On 18th June 2024, my uncle and aunt were travelling from Bhopal to Agra by Vande Bharat. The food they got from IRCTC had cockroaches in it. Please take strict action against the person who served the food and ensure this doesn't happen again.”

IRCTC replied
IRCTC also reacted on this matter on Thursday. They talked about imposing fines and taking strict action. IRCTC wrote, 'We apologize for your travel experience. This matter has been taken seriously and appropriate fines have been imposed on the concerned service provider. We have also tightened production and logistics monitoring.'

People are giving their reactions on social media
Many people on social media reacted to the complainant's post. One user wrote, 'This is a serious problem as such cases are being reported in India's most premium train Vande Bharat. This is really disappointing.' Some others jokingly called it a source of 'protein'.

Cockroaches have been found in train food earlier too
This is not the first incident of cockroaches being found in train food. Earlier also cockroaches have been found in the food of Vande Bharat Express. In February, a passenger named Dr. Shubhendu Keshari was travelling from Katni to Jabalpur Junction when he found a dead cockroach in the food served by IRCTC. In July last year, the railways had imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on the food vendor after a passenger found a cockroach in the food in Bhopal-Delhi Vande Bharat Express.
