Ambulance Stopped For Passing IPL Convoy
With players leaving for their home, now a clip has got viral in which IPL convoy can be seen passing a street and ambulance was stopped due to the same. When joint commissioner was quizzed regarding the same instance, he denied any such happening. He said that they have seen the clip and will verify whether the traffic was specially stopped by the traffic police or not.
“We have seen the video and are yet to verify whether the traffic at the said junction was stopped by Traffic Police or Ahmedabad Police. The police will never stop an ambulance on its way for any VIP convoy, be it of IPL players or any minister. We even don’t stop hearse vans for convoys.
The joint commissioner also asserted that these are baseless comments being made by everyone and a way to tarnish the reputation of police.
“The case could be of momentary confusion. This is a malicious attempt to tarnish the image of police with fake and defamatory video,” Mayanksinh said while speaking to the Indian Express. Another senior police official explained that the video, in no way, tells if the ambulance was in a hurry as there was no siren being used to make way for it.
