Days after the Haryana BJP chief’s son was accused of stalking the daughter of an IAS officer, a BJP municipal council chief allegedly stopped an ambulance that hit his car, resulting in the death of the patient who could not get timely treatment.
The complainant, Arun Kumar, has alleged that he was taking his uncle, Naveen Kumar, to a cardiologist when their ambulance hit the car of BJP municipal council chief, Darshan Nagpal, from the rear.
Nagpal, he alleged, stopped the ambulance near the Lal Batti Chowk in Hisar and squabbled with the ambulance driver over compensation for more than 30 minutes. He alleged that his uncle died before he could be attended by doctors due to this delay.
Nagpal, however, denied the allegations and said he had a word with the ambulance driver after it reached the hospital.
“The ambulance driver hit my car from the rear near the old bus stand. The driver stopped his vehicle to check it, but as there was a patient inside we asked him to leave. All the allegations against me are baseless, and I am ready to join the police investigations,” Nagpal added.
Superintendent of Police (SP) Fatehabad, Kuldeep Singh, said they have received a complaint from Sitaram and Arun Kumar. “The police are investigating the matter. No case has been registered so far.”
