A man in Haryana lost his life allegedly after a local Bharatiya Janata Party leader refused to allow the ambulance to move for nearly half hour. According to relatives, the victim, identified as Navin, was being taken to hospital when the ambulance accidentally hit the BJP leader, Darashan Nagpal’s car.
An incensed Nagpal then held up the ambulance even as the desperate relatives requested him to let it go as Navin Soni’s condition deteriorated. But these requests have little impact on the local BJP leader. Navin died a little later.
The incident took place on Saturday. The victim’s brother, Sitaram Soni said, “Pradhan tailed our car and stopped our ambulance, demanding compensation for damages. The doctor told us if only you had come 15 minutes earlier, we could have saved him.”
The family has now filed a police complaint.
This is second incident in as many a=days to have embarrassed the Haryana’s BJP government after it emerged that the state party chief’s son had allegedly stalked and nearly kidnapped an IAS officer’s daughter.
The son, Vikas Barala, son of Haryana BJP chief, Subhash Barala was arrested but later released after local cops, who report to the Centre’s Modi government, chose to drop non-Bailable sections slapped against him.
Demands are now growing against the Manohar Lal Khattar government to have Barala sacked from the party.
