In a shocking incident, doctors allegedly used an ambulance to ferry cartons of liquor and called Russian belly dancers to entertain themselves in an alumni meet organised at state-run Lala Lajpat Rai Medical College campus in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut.

The alleged incident came to light after a video after a video went viral on social media.

The video shows liquor cartons of foreign brands being carried in an ambulance with registration number UP 15 CT, women bartenders wearing Christmas caps serving serving drinks to the doctors.

In the video one can also see doctors dancing to popular Bollywood tunes.

According to reports, doctors from 1982 batch boozed, danced and watched the dancer performing their belly acts during the silver jubilee function, which was organised by the Old School Association.

The Uttar Pradesh government has ordered a probe after the video was aired on news channels.
