With the Raj Banana Leaf incident of dishes washed in murky water still fresh in mind, people were more ready to believe a video that went viral of huge rats having the run of a restaurant kitchen allegedly in Malaysia.
Happily, it has turned out to be fake news as the providence of the video has been traced to China.
On learning about the video clip, DBKL’s health department conducted an inspection of a restaurant purported to be the eatery in the video. The outlet was given the all-clear, according to a DBKL health officer.
The video is said to have started circulating about three days ago and was carried on the Express news site in the United Kingdom on June 1.
Apparently, in the act of sharing the video, the eatery became localised either because of speculation or mischief.
