Many members at the facility said that sometime back when ‘litti’ was cooked and distributed among the inmates, Ojha had stunned everyone by consuming 83 of them!
District officials are now at their wits’ end after the cook threw up his hands in frustration. Following the cook’s refusal to make 40 rotis daily for him, now rice is being served to him during both breakfast and lunch.
Due to his large diet, a shortage of food grains and other food supplies was reported following which administrative officials paid a visit to the centre. Though they were quite surprised by the amount of food he consumes in a day, they decided to let him eat as he pleases.
“Ojha’s quarantine period is about to end. We have instructed the cook that he should not be deprived of food. Nor there should be any slash in his diet. Let him have whatever he wants,” Deccan Herald quoted the officials as saying.
Block Development Officer (BDO) of Simri, Ajay Kumar Singh, said 23-year-old Ojha was brought to the centre about 10 days ago and that he had been to Rajasthan in search of a job.
