It is the second time in the past two days when the state’s BJP is being accused of tampering with the law and order of state.
This time a BJP leader in Haryana is accused of holding up an ambulance after it hit his car, causing a delay that may have led to the patient’s death. Darshan Nagpal, a BJP councilor in Fatehabad, has denied the allegations of the patient’s relatives, who have filed a complaint.
Earlier the Illogical Indian published report about the incident where state BJP chief’s son was accused of stalking a woman. The woman described in a Facebook post how she was chased on the streets of Chandigarh on Friday night.
On Saturday evening, the ambulance allegedly hit Mr Nagpal’s car at a traffic intersection in Fatehabad, around 220 km from Chandigarh. Patient Naveen Soni’s relatives, Sitaram Soni and Arun Soni, have said in their complaint that the BJP leader chased the ambulance down, blocked its way and refused to let it pass for about half an hour.
According to them, when the ambulance reached the hospital, Naveen Soni was declared brought dead.
“The doctor told us if only you had come 15 minutes earlier, we could have saved him,” said Sitaram Soni.
He further added that Pradhan stopped their ambulance and was demanding compensation for the damages.
Senior police officer Jagdish Chandra confirmed that his department had received a complaint against the BJP leader. “Both sides have been called to the police station for our investigation,” said Mr Chandra.
