The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) was finally suspended on Tuesday after the emergence of fresh Covid-19 cases within the bio-bubble. The tournament was already under the scanner due to a health emergency in India. And now a video of an ambulance being stopped for IPL team bus to pass in Ahmedabad has gone viral on social media which has left the people fuming.
The police can be seen stopping an ambulance for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bus to pass first.
However, the Joint Commissioner of Ahmedabad, Mayanksinh has denied any such incident in the city. According to him, police will never stop the ambulance for any convoy and stated that there is some confusion.
“We have seen the video and are yet to verify whether the traffic at the said junction was stopped by Traffic Police or Ahmedabad Police. The police will never stop an ambulance on its way for any VIP convoy, be it of IPL players or any minister. We even don’t stop hearse vans for convoys. “The case could be of momentary confusion. This is a malicious attempt to tarnish the image of police with fake and defamatory video,” Mayanksinh said while speaking to the Indian Express
