Lucknow: Seven UP health employees,
including three officers, were on Thursday suspended after a probe
found them guilty of staging vulgar dance and permitting
liquor at a swearing-in ceremony, a government spokesman said
here.
Those suspended included three officers -- Health and
family welfare, Director Ramji Lal, Additional Director R B
Singh, Joint-Director Ramesh Chandra, he said.

The suspended employees include senior assistants
Jaiveer Prasad Gautam and Sudhir Kumar Chaturvedi, junior
clerk Hanuman Prasad and class four staff Vinod Kumar.
A high level inquiry was ordered last night after the
administration took strong exception to the incident where
dance girls performed and employees consumed liquor during the
ceremony of the newly elected ministerial association.

The three-member inquiry committee in its probe prima
facie found all the seven guilty.
