In a yet another appalling case of VVIP culture, a patient requiring immediate medical assistance lost his life after a Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leader in Fatehabad District of Haryana stopped the ambulance after his car was mistakenly scratched on Saturday.
The family of the deceased has filed a complaint with the police against the BJP councillor Darshan Nagpal.
The incident took place when the ambulance with a patient in the critical state slightly dented the car of the local BJP man. The furious saffron party leader then did not allow the ambulance to move despite repeated requests by the family and the staff.
Having not received the necessary medical attention, the man later died as he delayed the ambulance from reaching the hospital for about half hour.
The patient identified as a 42-year-old Naveen Soni was in his shop when he complained of severe pain and was decided to take him to a nearby hospital.
The ambulance stopped at the red light when a home guard stepped up to pave way for the vehicle. In an attempt to go through the ambulance scratched against the local leaders’ car, who decided to chase the ambulance an intersection creating a ruckus.
The incident comes in the wake of the ‘stalking case’ already haunting the BJP government of Manohar Lal Khattar, involving son of party state president Subhash Barala.
Subhash Barala’s son Vikas was arrested on charges of stalking and harassing after a woman filed a complaint against him in Chandigarh.
Notably, the girl, daughter of an IAS officer alleged that Vikas and one other with him chased her in Chandigarh’s Sector 26 area.
The police have registered a case under Section 354 D (stalking) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 185 (Motor Vehicle Act) of the CrPC.
However, Vikas Barala was granted bail later in the day.
