A 42 year old man allegedly fell prey to the inflated ego of a politician from the ruling party yesterday in Haryana.

Naveen Kumar was a shopkeeper at Fatehabad in Haryana. His health suddenly detoriated while he was manning his shop yesterday.

Neighbours and other family members quickly got an ambulance and the middle aged man was rushed to the nearest hospital.

The hospital declared Naveen's condition to be critical and advised that he be removed immediately to a better facility.

As the ambulance dashed through the road trying to reach the second hospital in time to save the patient's life, it had a minor run in with a car on the road. 

The ambulance did not stop since a life was at stake. But, as fate would have it, the car allegedly belonged to senior BJP leader Darshan Nagpal.

A miffed Nagpal allegedly chased the ambulance and overtook it a short distance away.

He then allegedly started threatening the driver Sonu and the family members inside with dire consequences, using his position as a municipal commissioner, reports ABP News.

The driver pleaded to the politician to let them go and he would pay for the damages to the car. The family members showed him the dying man inside and requested him to let them go to the hospital.

But everything fell on deaf ears. The power crazy politician allegedly took away the keys of the ambulance and continued to harass them for over 20 minutes.

Finally, local people assembled at the spot convinced the politician to spare the ambulance.

When the ambulance finally reached the hospital, Naveen was proclaimed 'brought dead'. His family members claimed that doctors said that he might have been saved if he had come 20 minutes ago - Nagpal seems to have delayed the ambulance enough to cause the patient's death.

A police complaint has been launched against Darshan Nagpal. He has not been available for comments yet.
