Caterer fired over suspected dog meat

DHAKA (Reuters) - The caterer at a dormitory on Bangladesh’s Dhaka University has been fired after students complained they were served dog meat, officials said on Thursday.

Students at the Hajji Mohammad Mohsin Hall protested after a student suspected that the meat on his plate was of a “dog or fox,” instead of beef or mutton.

He drew the attention of other students, who rushed to the authorities demanding an immediate investigation.

“We have seized the menu and expelled the hall caterer,” said Ahmed Zaman Anwar, provost of the 1,200-student dormitory.

“The offending meat has been sent for tests at a laboratory and we are waiting for the results,” he said.
