New Delhi, Aug 27 : A youth was stabbed by unidentified people in Ambedkar Nagar area Tuesday and his relatives alleged that the delay by policemen in rushing him to a hospital cost him his life. The police refuted the allegation.

A video shot by a passerby also shows the boy lying in a pool of blood on the road while the policemen are talking to him instead of taking him to a hospital.

Police said Raju Pandey, 18, was attacked near his home in the Ambedkar Nagar area of south Delhi Tuesday evening. He received several stab injuries on his body.

A passerby informed the police control room. A PCR van reached the spot and took him to a hospital where he was declared dead due to excess bleeding.

"My son died because of police...they were talking to him instead of taking him to a hospital even after reaching the spot," said Pandey's mother.

She also said a friend had called Pandey to meet him in a market.

However, police said the injured was immediately rushed to a hospital after they reached the spot.

"The call was made at 6.33 p.m. and the PCR van reached within two minutes. The policemen immediately took him to a hospital," Deputy Commissioner Police (PCR) Rajeev Ranjan told IANS.
