Meerut: In a shocking incident, an ambulance was used to ferry liquor cartons while Russian belly dancers performed at the alumni meet of the state-run Lala Lajpat Rai Medical College.
The doctors’ bash took place in the college premises on Monday evening and photos of the ambulance van bearing registration number UP15CT2860 and registered in the name of ‘Health Care Imaging Centre’ along with a short video of a Russian belly dancer have gone viral on social media.
A senior BJP leader who saw a video of the event in Meerut, around 80 kms from the national capital, said colleges were “temples of learning” and the students appeared to have crossed the line.
Under immense pressure, the principal of the college has ordered a high-level probe into the incident while the Uttar Pradesh government ensured stringent action against the culprits.
“Russian Belly dancers were called and liquor was stored in an ambulance van, it should not have happened at a state run medical college. Inquiry has been ordered,” Rajkumar, the Chief Medical Officer of Meerut said.
According to reports, the annual alumni meet on Monday was organised by the old students of the college’s 1992 batch.
