In a surprising twist in Kolhapur, an ambulance designated for responding to medical emergencies was repurposed for a Garba celebration. The incident took place one Sunday evening when the ambulance, identified by its registration number MH-09 FL-6709, was observed racing near the Hockey Stadium while heading towards Gokhale College.

While on the journey this time, the ambulance had its sirens blaring, indicating an emergency. The ambulance overtook a four-wheeler and two-wheelers, signaling them to make way, and then continued with urgency. Bystanders were taken aback as the ambulance overtaking other vehicles ultimately collided with a four-wheeler. This prompted concerned citizens to follow the ambulance. The ambulance was eventually brought to a stop in the vicinity of Northstar Hospital, where a curious crowd gathered.

The situation veered into the unexpected as local residents asked the ambulance driver to unlock the rear door. At first, he hesitated, but as the crowd's insistence grew, he relented and opened the door. Inside, a gathering of young women, attired for a Garba celebration, was exposed.

They disclosed that they were students from a medical college who had departed for a festive Garba occasion. Local authorities were notified, and the Juna Rajwada police promptly arrived at the location, documenting the driver's information and issuing a warning against the inappropriate use of an ambulance in the future.
