As we were hurring up, the ambulance touched Nagpal's car. When the ambulance tried to go ahead towards the hospital, the BJP leader chased the ambulance down, blocked its way and asked for compensation.
''We kept pleading with Nagpal to allow my uncle to be shifted to the hospital since his condition was serious, but he did not relent and in the process wasted a precious over half-an-hour when my uncle could have got emergency care. He died before he could be attended to by the doctors," patient's brother said. The pleas fell on deaf ears and Navin died later on.
However, an FIR has been registered against the BJP leader. The police is investigating the case for further information.
