Bengaluru, June 29: In a shocking and shameless case of misuse of VIP treatment, an ambulance was reportedly stopped to allow Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's convoy in Bengaluru.
The incident took place at Hoskote Junction in Bengaluru on June 28, Tuesday night, when an ambulance carrying a patient, who was battling for life, was made to halt in a traffic jam to pave way for CM's convoy.
Police allegedly didn't allow the ambulance to move till the convoy passed. The driver of the ambulance was seen begging a police official to let the ambulance go, as it was an emergency case.
The incident came to media limelight when a Facebook user, Vivek Shetty posted a video of the incident, saying, "Ambulance stopped to allow CM Siddaramaiah's convoy, police deny in Hoskote, Bengaluru. Police didn't allow an ambulance to move till CM of Karnataka VIP cars move, even he bigged like hell. CM's convoy passing is more important than letting an ambulance go carrying someone battling for life. Moral of the story, battle for power wins over battle for life. Do Share this video."
However, Bengaluru traffic police denied that an ambulance was halted. Here is the video, that shows a common man's life is nothing in front of powerful people.
At the time of filing this report, the video was viewed by 91,000 people and got 3,567 shares and 340 comments.
