In a shocking incident in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur district, two accident victims were denied help by the police who refused to carry their bloodied bodies in their car to the hospital, leading to the death of both the boys. The cops on night patrolling duty were caught red-handed on camera denying help to two boys lying on the road after an accident. In this footage that has been shared on social media platforms, these cops can be seen refusing to help the victims while the bystanders cried and begged them to lift the bodies and put them in the car. On being told that their car would get washed once the bodies reach the hospital, the cops were heard asking where would they sit in the night if their car went for a wash.
The incident reportedly took place on Thursday midnight. The victims met with an accident when their bike crashed into an electric pole, throwing the two boys into a canal. When the police reached the spot of the accident, they refused to help the victims due to their blood stains, despite multiple requests.
A video which went viral right after the incident showed how the acquaintances of the victims pleaded to the cops who refused to help the boys in order to avoid blood stains on their car seats. In a quivering voice, a man in the video was heard saying “They are also somebody’s children. I request you, please help.” The man in the video repeatedly went on pleading that the boys would die if not taken to the hospital immediately while the cops stuck to their decision of not helping the victims. The victims were later reportedly taken to the hospital by the spectators in an auto, where the two were declared dead. The two boys were identified as Arpit Khurana and Sunny Gupta.
The police is now taking a disciplinary action on the entire incident. “We have taken exemplary action against the three cops. We cannot tolerate the kind of inhuman treatment that was meted out to those in dire need of help. They (the three cops) are already under suspension. If, after the inquiry that has been set up, their irresponsible and immoral conduct is conclusively established, further action will be taken against them,” the DIG of Saharanpur, Sunil Emannuel was quoted saying by TOI.
