Hostellers create ruckus at BBAU central mess
LUCKNOW : A group of drunken hostellers created a ruckus and manhandled the staff of the central mess of Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University (BBAU) late on Friday night, said university officials who are now probing the incident.
Proctor Ram Chandra said hostellers of Siddharth Hostel and Ashoka Hostel reached the central mess late on Friday night and demanded snacks. The mess workers refused, saying the mess was closed and it was too late to take new orders.
The CCTV video footage will be looked into. Notices will be served to the students found guilty. The university may take stringent action.
