A customer reportedly found a dead lizard in a bowl of ‘sambar’ at a popular South Indian restaurant at Connaught Place in Delhi, police said on Monday.

According to the police, Pankaj Agarwal, a resident of Fatehpuri area in Chandni Chowk, visited the restaurant along with his two friends. They ordered ‘dosa’ and ‘sambar’ for dinner.

When Agarwal started eating, he found a dead lizard in his bowl of ‘sambar’. He captured the sight in his mobile phone and questioned the restaurant staff following which the manager assured him that it will not happen in future, they said.
