Embilipitiya Magistrate K.P.R.L Widanagamage (Ms) ordered on Saturday (26) to release a Manager of a festival hall in Embilipitiya New Town on surety bail of Rs.100,000. He had served chicken curry with live worms for lunch at a wedding party.

According to a complaint received by the Chief Public Health Inspector of Embilipitiya Urban Council, Harsha Abeysinghe, the Health Officers have taken the bowl of chicken curry with live worms at a raid carried out on Friday afternoon (25) .

This complaint had been made by a doctor who had attended the party and it has been mentioned in the complaint made to the court that there were worms wriggling in a piece of meat.

It has been revealed at the investigations made by the Health Authorities that the chicken pieces are separately fried and packed in the trays of a refrigerator and later these pieces are added to a separate curry as required.

This case is scheduled to be heard on February 1, 2019 again. (Ajithlal Shantha Udaya and Jayanatha Nanayakkara)

    HOW COME LIVE WORMS IN HOT CURRIES ???

    The chicken is made seperately. Then the curry is made seperately and the chicken added. I think this would have been made early so the curry could marinate with the cooked chicken.. but if the chicken was old, maggots would have come out of it (that is what they have referred to as 'live worms'. Either way, it does not take a doctor to recognize a maggot.
