Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has sacked four security guards and discontinued the internship of 11 pharmacy students after a viral video showed them creating ruckus and celebrating a birthday party in the hospital campus.
The students have been ordered to report back at their respective colleges from where they had arrived for internship. These students had completed one-month of their three-month internship period.
Director Civil hospital Dr Anand Ojha said, "Nobody is above the rules and those who break rules will have to face action." Dr R.P.
