The two teenagers lay bleeding on the road; the police had reached the accident site but they wouldn’t move them. Because the three policemen didn’t want the blood to stain the seats of their patrol car.
“They are also somebody’s children… I request you,” an acquaintance of one of the two teenagers is heard pleading to the policemen in a video that exposes the shocking insensitivity of these policemen. “Nobody else has a car here. Take them,” a man, his voice quivering, repeatedly pleads to the policemen in western Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur.
