Two youngsters were refused help by cops in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur bleeding out into the road, saying that they didn’t want blood stains in their car.

Arpit Khurana and Sunny Garg were going home on a motorcycle when they hit a pole and were flung into a drain. People rushed to help them and also called a Dail 100 vehicle. The policemen on the night patrol saw this incident, yet didn’t take the victims to the hospital, and instead tried to hail other cars to do so. By the time another vehicle arrived to take the boys, it was too late, and they were declared dead at the hospital.

KS Emmanuel, Deputy Inspector General of Police, Saharanpur Range, says, “It’s an unfortunate incident. The policemen acted in an extremely inhuman way. We are taking strict action against them. For now they have been suspended. I have asked for a report in 24 hours before further action,” as reported by NDTV.

The entire incident was videotaped by a pedestrian on his phone and later uploaded on social media. The incident invited everyone’s rage and the polemen were suspended.

“No one else has an auto here. Take them,” a man, his voice shuddering, over and again asks for the policemen. A policemen while denying their pleas said, “It will stain our car.” “Your auto can be washed but…” another voice tells the policemen. The policemen can be heard saying that if the car goes for washing then where were the two of them going to sit in the night.

The National Human Rights Commission issued a notice to the Uttar Pradesh police for the two cops refusing to carry the boys’ body.

“I have seen mottos on squad cars about how they are anxious to help whenever of the day. It would be ideal if you expel that line on the off chance that you would prefer not to help. Had there been a policeman’s child instead of Sunny, would they have done likewise?,” asks a relative.
