Unfortunately, one of the four injured succumbed to his injuries on the way and died even before they reached the hospital.
The judge said that he had waited at the accident site for a while before calling again to ask where the ambulance had reached, but someone from the ambulance control room said:
“Ambulance udh kar nahi ayegi, aaram se aayegi”(the ambulance will not fly and come, it will take time).
