Saharanpur: Two teenage boys, victims of a road accident, were left to die on the road in Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh after three policemen allegedly refused to ferry them to a hospital in their car.

The shocking incident came to light on Friday night when the two youth identified as Arpit Khurana and Sunny, both 17 years, of Setia Vihar locality fell into a canal after their bike rammed into an electric pole.

The policemen refused to take the grievously injured boys to hospital in their patrol car because of their unwilling to ‘soil car with blood’.

“It came to our notice that PRB 970 reached on the spot (of the accident) and refused to take the youth to the hospital,” said Superintendent of Police Pralabh Pratap Singh.

In a video taken by a bystander on his cellphone that has gone viral, showed a young man crying and pleading the police to help his friends.

As he was pleading he begged a man standing nearby to check the pulse of his heavily bleeding friend and was replied with “he is dead.”

“Bhaiya iski body thandi ho rhi hai. Kuch to karo. (His body is getting cold, please do something.),” pleaded the miserable friend.

However, the police officials examining the scene are not seen taking any actions.

The policemen while dismissing their pleas says, “It will stain our car.”

“Your car can be washed but…” another voice tells the policemen.

“When the car goes for a wash, where will we sit all night,” retorts one of them, reported NDTV.

The video shows a car or two stopping but then after a brief conversation, moving away from the scene.

SP Singh said they have seen the brutal video and are taking “disciplinary actions on the same.”

Father of one of the two youth want a case to be made on the concerned cops. “Had my child received first aid on time, he could have been saved. Even the doctors say that.”
