Thiruvananthapuram: State home minister Ramesh Chennithala Monday said there was no lapse on part of the police in the incident in which a man, suspected to be a nomad, was killed while he was attempting to cross the road in the state capital.
“The victim was taken to the hospital in ten minutes after the accident. No lapse on part of the police,” said Chennithala.
The accident occurred at Kizhakkekotta in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday when the man was attempting to cross the road.
A Police Control Room Vehicle (CRV) that reached the spot called for an ambulance, which shifted the injured man to the Government Medical College Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries
The incident had snowballed into a controversy with television channels alleging that the police personnel had refused to take the injured to hospital and instead wasted precious time in waiting for an ambulance.
