AmuThe Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) on Monday rejected allegations that vegetarian food was being cooked in oil used to prepare non-vegetarian dishes. The denial came after a section of vegetarian students alleged that they were served food cooked in oil that had been used to make non-vegetarian dishes.

Students of Sir Syed Hall (North), in a letter to the vice-chancellor, alleged that the cooks use the same oil to fry chicken and pooris. They demanded strict action against the cooks and suggested a separate kitchen for cooking vegetarian food.

The matter came to light on November 26 when a student received a call from the hostel’s dining hall about the bad quality of cooking oil being used for frying pooris. Following the alert, a group of students reached the kitchen and found that the oil was blackish in colour and had been used to fry chicken a day earlier.
