Patna: In a shocking event, visuals of medical professionals allegedly consuming alcohol have emerged from the dry state of Bihar on Sunday, December 17. The video of doctors partying with alcohol is claimed to be from Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital (DMCH). 

The videos and images have allegedly been recorded inside the guest house of Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital during the ongoing Pedicon 2023. The viral video shows bottles of sealed imported liquor lying on the floor. 


With the video making rounds on the internet, Jan Adhikar Party chief Pappu Yadav shared the image from the same on his account on X, demanding action from Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. Pappu Yadav alleged that the Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital (DMCH) served as an “adda for sharab, shabab and Kabab (hub for women, wine & dine)”. Pappu Yadav claimed he saw it firsthand when he was taken for treatment while in jail.

“There is a separate law for prohibition of liquor for the poor in Bihar and Is there a separate law for DMCH principal and doctors? Liquor was being served at the Pedicon conference in Darbhanga. The doctors were enjoying, the administration was sleeping, how long will this continue?? Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, please take cognizance (sic),” Pappu Yadav said on X, sharing a photo of the incident.


Bihar is a dry state as Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's government has banned alcohol consumption in the state in 2016.
