Patient died after Haryana BJP leader blocked ambulance, says family

The complainant, Arun Kumar, has alleged that he was taking his uncle, Naveen Kumar, to a cardiologist when their ambulance hit the vehicle of BJP municipal council chief, Darshan Nagpal, from the rear.

NDTV quoted Sitaram Soni, the brother of the deceased, as saying, "He tailed our vehicle and stopped our ambulance, demanding compensation for damages".

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 auto was mistakenly scratched on Saturday. Nagpal got into an argument with the driver and family members and also took away the ambulance keys, reported FirstPost.

"When the ambulance finally made it to the hospital, the doctors declared 42-year-old patient Naveen Soni as brought dead", the victim's family in its complaint said. The ambulance was reportedly stopped at the Lal Batti Chowk in Hisar.

In a separate case son of Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala was accused of stalking a woman and trying to kidnap her in Chandigarh city late on Friday night. "I believe in service, so how can I stop an ambulance", Pradhan said.

Nagpal, however, denied the allegation and said the ambulance was "unoccupied" and the driver was "drunk".

Soni claimed his brother would have been alive had he been brought to the hospital 15 minutes earlier.
