- Around 250 homebuyers were protesting against builder mafia in Noida
- Luv Kush, suffering from high fever, was on way to AIIMS hospital
- Ambulance was stuck for an hour before it ran out of oxygen
An Agra doctor had reportedly referred him to AIIMS.
According to the police, around 250 homebuyers were protesting against the builder mafia in Noida for delay in possession of their flats. They had blocked a section of Noida-Greater Noida Expressway.
The ambulance remained stuck for an hour before it ran out of oxygen. The boy's health deteriorated and he couldn't be saved.
The boy's family, who was in the ambulance, pleaded with the police to make way for the vehicle. Eyewitnesses alleged that though there was a large police contingent on the spot, they didn't help and instead remained mute spectators.
Satish Chandra, SHO Expressway police station, said,"We had received information about homebuyers blocking the expressway. A police team was sent and the protesters were dispersed. Regarding the death of the boy, we have no information from victim's family. We came to know through media reports."
An FIR has been registered against the protesters for rioting and unlawful restraint, a police official said. SSP Love Kumar said the "police was trying to connect with the victim's family members'.
