The Dholpur health department officials were left red-faced on Wednesday after medicines, which had crossed it expiry date, were found in the ambulance deployed in the cavalcade of chief minister Vasundhara Raje on her arrival at the local airport, where she landed by helicopter.

“We found injections with expired dates in the ambulance,” said Suresh Singh, an officer of the Crime Investigation Department, who discovered the lapse on the part of the health department officials.

“We informed Dholpur sub-divisional magistrate Manish Foujdar, after which the injections were replaced. The antibiotic injections had expired two years ago,” said Singh.

Foujdar, the Dholpur SDM, said, “We have recovered the injections and an inquiry under chief medical and health officer Rajesh Mittal has been set up. Action will be taken against the guilty after the inquiry report.”

According to sources, Raje will stay at her residence in Dholpur for five days.
