india Updated: Aug 02, 2010 11:59 IST

About 350 students of city's Symbiosis Institute were detained by police for organising a "friendship day" party at a farm house at Theur near here.

Some of the students, including boys and girls, had consumed alcohol at the party which was held at the farm house
last night without "proper permission", rural police said today.

The detained students were being subjected to a medical test to determine alcohol level in blood under
provisions of Bombay Prohibition Act, they added.

Dr Vidya Yeravadekar, director, Symbiosis Institute when contacted told PTI that the students had sought
permission of the hostel authorities for a "late out" but had failed to return within the time limit prescribed by the
institute authorities.

It was not a "rave" party at which narcotic drugs are consumed, police said.

According to Yeravadekar, the girls detained at the farm house, has been released by police.

The students involved are doing their MBA at the Symbiosis Management Institute.

An internal enquiry would be set up to probe the incident, Yeravadekar added.
