Students of three schools run by the prestigious Jamia Millia Islamia here and staying in six hostels attached to the University are reportedly getting unhygienic and unhealthy food of poor quality in their mess halls.

A PIL moved by the Indian Council of Legal Aid and Advice on their behalf in the Delhi High Court has sought directions for an inquiry into the episode. When the matter came up before a Division Bench over the weekend, the counsel for Jamia Millia submitted that remedial measures had already been taken following a complaint on February 20. The Bench, comprising Chief Justice G. Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath, gave time to the respondents till October 30 to act on the complaints.
