I watched the video on TV and was shocked to see the helpless cop bleed to death on duty, watched by two Tamil Nadu ministers stood and watched.
Sub-Inspector Vetrivel’s life could have been saved if the ministers and officials who were present on the spot had rushed him to hospital. The state health minister, Mr M.R.K. Paneerselvam, and environment and youth welfare minister, Mr T.P.M. Maideen Khan, remained mute witnesses. This is the condition of our Incredible India where human life has no value. Instead of calling the ambulance or taking instant action by rushing him to the hospital in any of the cars no one bothered to move.
Such a callous behaviour towards a human life? The SI pleaded for help and one can see him gasping for life as the ministers and others make phone calls wasting precious moments. State health secretary V.K. Subburaj offered water to the injured man, but kept the bottle high up as if something will happen to him if he moved closer. By the time the police reached the spot and rushed him to a hospital it was too late; he had died of loss of blood.
Sub-inspector, R. Vetrivel (44) was a member of the team that gunned down Veerappan in 2004, for which he earned a double promotion.
It fills my heart with anger and pain to see how crippled and inhuman our politicions are. These are the people in whose hands we have given the reigns of our country.
A brave cop who served the force till his last breath dies not because of the attack by the gangsters but due to these creatures not fit to be called even humans.
Will DMK govt do anything for the slain officer and those responsible for his death including the ministers who did not even have the courtsey to attend the last rites of the brave cop?
who is responsible for Vetrivel’s death- The anti- social elements or these two ministers? Don’t you think these ministers should be sacked?
Tirunelveli District Collector M. Jayaraman told reporters,” The sub-inspector was injured after being attacked by country bombs and deadly weapons. There were some unexploded bombs near him and there was some smoke. The policemen accompanying the two ministers were chasing the gang members. In all, there was a delay of only 10 minutes in taking the injured man to the hospital”.
If a brave cop can serve the state not worring about his life , why can’t the two ministers or any of the people travelling with them in the convoy show some courage and save him from death ? Was his life worth nothing as compared to theirs?
watch this video and read the above link.
Some people have raised a question about the moral code of conduct for the media. Well I guess saving a human life at any cost is the priority still the role of media is to bring the truth to us, to let people see the gruesome realities of everyday life be it self-immolation, floods, riots, or in this case the callousness of our ministers and others.
I think the camera person did a commendable job by shooting the incident. He was maybe just a rider with the entourage of the ministers and did not have any way to save the dying man. The other people with more power and resources stood like statues at least he was just a bit more sensitive to the thing.
It is not an easy task to watch and film death knowing its your job and you are helpless in such circumstances.
give the man some credit.
