According to reports, a young biker collided with another bike from opposite direction on the National Highway in Beed. The bike immediately caught on fire. Not a single person came forward to help the boy engulfed by fire. Instead, they clicked pictures and shot video of the boy. The incident once gain proved that India is a nation of onlookers.
It may be recalled that in a similar incident of public apathy, an 18-year-old boy succumbed to injuries following a road accident as onlookers clicked pictures of the bleeding victim in Karnataka. In the incident caught on camera, the boy lay bleeding with an agonising pain for about 25 minutes before he was rushed to a hospital nearby by.
