An 18-year-old boy was stabbed by unknown persons in Madangir near Ambedkar Nagar in southeast Delhi on Tuesday evening, police said.

The teen’s family has alleged that the police delayed taking him to the hospital, which led to his death.

The victim’s family claimed that a passerby shot a video of their son lying on the road in a pool of blood and a policeman trying to talk to him, instead of rushing him to the hospital.

Senior police officers, however, refuted the allegations and said that the beat constable was waiting for the PCR van to arrive to rush the man to the hospital.

The deceased has been identified as Raju Pandey. He was attacked by some people near his home at Madangir following an argument. There were multiple stab injuries on his body.

“My son died because of police... They were talking to him instead of taking him to the hospital,” said Pandey’s mother. She also said that a friend had called Pandey to meet him at the nearby market.

But the police said that the victim was rushed to the hospital immediately.
