Cops' insensitivity results in death of two minors

In a shocking incident reflecting lack of sensitivity on the part of the Uttar Pradesh police, two minors, who had met with an accident, bled to death allegedly after the cops, who had reached there on being informed, refused to carry them to the hospital in their vehicle saying that it would become dirty.

The shocking incident occurred in state's Saharanpur late on Thursday night. According to the sources three police personnel have been suspended in this connection and a probe was ordered.

Sources said that two minors, identified as Arpit Khurana and Sunny, both aged around 16 years, met with an accident in Kotwali area in the town around midnight on Thursday. Their motor bike collided with an electric pole and fell into the nearby nullah.

A few locals managed to bring the two youths out of the nullah and informed the cops. 'Dial 100', a police vehicle, reached the spot a little later but the cops, after seeing the bloodied youths, refused to transport them in their vehicle.

''Where will we sit?....the vehicle will be dirty,'' the cops said and sped away from there leaving them to die.

By the time the locals arranged a private vehicle and took them to the hospital, the two had already died owing to excessive bleeding.

The matter came to light, when a video showing the cops leaving the spot without the injured youths and containing their utterances went viral on the social networking sites on Friday.

Police sources said that three cops, including a sub-inspector, were suspended in this connection and a probe had been ordered.

Barely a few days back the UP cops had forced the parents of an eight year old child, who had been hit by a bullet fired by the police during an encounter in Mathura, to get down from their vehicle midway to the hospital. The child was declared brought dead upon reaching the hospital later.
