A 60-year-old woman died after an ambulance got ‘stuck’ in a traffic jam allegedly caused by the AAP-LIP rally near the venue on Gill Road Sunday afternoon.
The woman was suffering from low blood sugar and loose motions. Her family alleged that the ambulance got stuck in a traffic jam caused due to the rally being addressed by Arvind Kejriwal.
Avtar Kaur,a resident of New Shimlapuri was admitted to the Grewal Hospital at Gill road on Sunday morning. She was referred to Krishna Hospital at Model Town after her condition deteriorated.
Her son, Davinder Singh, alleged, “We were stuck in the traffic jam for 20-25 minutes. The jam was massive due to rally and I repeatedly asked people to let the ambulance pass but none gave us way. She died in the ambulance.”
Alleging that it was due to a political party that his mother died, Singh later protested by lying on the road. ADCP Dhruv Dahiya said that after the death of the woman, her family protested on road. “They did not lodge any written complaint as of now and left after protesting for few minutes,” he said.
Ashok Kumar, associated with Grewal Hospital also confirmed that due to traffic jam they were unable to move the ambulance and as the patient was in a serious condition. She could not be saved.
