Jagdeep Singh, practising in Panchkula, was on a visit to his native village in Jind on Monday. While leaving for Panchkula, he saw four people injured in a collision between a motorcycle and a car at Ikkas village.

Panicked, he called up the 102 service a couple of times for an ambulance. Irked by his frequent calls, the ambulance operator instead gave a shocking reply: “Ambulance kya udd ke aaegi? (Will the ambulance come flying?)”

Taking charge of the situation, the judge sought help from passersby and rushed the injured victims to the civil hospital.

However, while one of the victims was pronounced dead on arrival, another succumbed to injuries a few hours later at PGIMS in Rohtak, where he was referred from Jind.

The police said Ajay Kumar, a resident of Ramrai village, was brought dead while his brother Paras Kumar succumbed to injuries in Rohtak.

The judge met Jind chief medical officer (CMO) Dr Sanjay Dahiya and narrated the incident to him. “He told me about the shocking reply from our ambulance operator. Based on his version, we have initiated an internal inquiry in the jurisdiction of two surgeons, who have been asked to submit a report within two days,” Dr Dahiya said.

The police have registered a case against the two men in the car, one of whom is admitted at Jind while the other is critical at PGIMS in Rohtak.
