Youth dies from stab wounds in South-East Delhi… after police delayed medical treatment to question him
The lackadaisical attitude of Delhi Police has been exposed yet again when a youth succumbed to his injuries recently in South-east Delhi’s Dakshinpuri area, owing to a delay in medical attention.
Video footage of the incident showed a police officer, who was present at the spot, questioning the victim instead of rushing him to a hospital.
The accused Ashu stabbed Raju multiple times and left him bleeding on the busy street on Tuesday.
The incident took place on Tuesday afternoon in the Dakshinpuri area, police said.
According to sources, Ashu and Raju were well acquainted with each other earlier. However, their relationship began to sour over some monetary issues.
On the fateful day, a heated argument broke out between Ashu and Raju when the former brushed past the victim on his bike, as per police reports.
An enraged Ashu whipped out a knife and stabbed his estranged friend multiple times.
Locals alleged that police reached the spot and questioned him instead of rushing him to a hospital.
However, Raju’s mother had a different story to tell.
“My son was having food when a boy called him. While leaving, Raju told me that he would be back in a while. The incident took place when my son tried to save a child who was being thrashed by somebody. When he tried to save that child, the assaulter attacked and killed my son. There was a policeman at the spot, but he did not come to the rescue of my son,” she alleged.
“Raju was attacked with a pair of scissors and a knife. He pierced the scissors into my son’s abdomen and stabbed him in the thigh with the knife. The onlookers also didn’t show the courtesy to rush him to the hospital.
“By the time he could be taken to the hospital, he succumbed to the injuries,” she said.
