Patna: Goons of Pappu Yadav in Patna on Sunday ransacked a girls' hostel on Khazanchi Road after a video of some men having a drinking party went viral on social media.

Dozens of Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) activists on Sunday barged into the Shashi Girls Hostel on Khazanchi Road and ransacked the building by destroying computers, furniture, television set, and a refrigerator. They then put their own padlock on the main door and blocked the busy Ashok Rajpath for over two hours demanding the arrests of the manager and other officials of the hostel.

JAP national working committee chairperson and former Bihar minister Akhlaq Ahmed said that the hostel officials had turned the office into a drinking den where his friends used to gather each evening and consume alcohol despite a ban on alcohol in Bihar.

"Despite numerous complaints by the girls in the hostel, the drinking parties continued. Only when a video of it went viral the police carried out a raid on Saturday," Ahmed said.

Following the raid, the police had lodged FIRs against the hostel manager Rajesh Sahay, his wife, his brother Abhishek Kumar, and another relative of Sahay.

The hostel is in a building owned by a DSP working in the CBI, police said.
