Incredible India 40: Pigs Watch as Cop Bleeds, Dies

(Suggested by SI blog reader Boopalan)

Yet another Only in Incredible India story, folks.

A policeman lies in agony on the road, his right leg cut off by a bomb hurled by a bunch of criminals who mistake him for another policeman they intend to attack.

Vetrivel, the seriously injured policeman in the state of Tamil Nadu, is bleeding and in profound pain.

Yet so many people standing nearby including two ministers make no effort to help the poor man.

By the time the watching pigs finally decide to do something, it’s too late.

Precious time has been wasted and the policeman dies a short while later.

Just another day in Incredible India.

Here, watch the below video.

Did someone say Mera Bharat Mahaan?

    In this video, one can clearly see the extent of damage that one of his legs has incurred. It is almost out of his body.

    People would treat a dog / beggar, in a better way than what is being done to the SI.

    May he RIP. Responds:

    You write: May he RIP.

    No, he won’t.

    The poor man died needlessly and in extreme agony. The man must have wondered with so many people and cars around why no one was coming to help him when he lay grievously injured.

    What happened to Vetrivel is a tragedy beyond description. 😥

    There was a few commenting in news articles like this

    “Such people who just remained dumb spectators are the real terrorists.”

    “Our so called political leaders are just the reflections of ourselves.” Responds:

    To leave a badly injured man lying like that is to display total lack of humanitarian feelings for a fellow human being.

    We feel very sad about it.

    those parts of TN are famous for the Aruva Culture …….apart from the minister’s ….police was also standing there watching …..that’s more shocking …. Responds:

    You Write Above: police was also standing there watching …..that’s more shocking ….

    A few minutes back (i.e at 1:30 AM EST) we were talking to one of our friends who is now visiting India…He said the same thing about the police standing and watching.

    Ugh. What saddens me more is that this isn’t the first case. Responds:

    Sad beyond words.

    Politics is the pass time of scoundrels. Responds:

    Not just the ministers or bureaucrats, even the people were standing around passively.

    If those idiots hadn’t stopped their convoy and had this incident not been videotaped –yes, it would have been more beastly — but this incident would have gone unnoticed.. they got screwed by trying to do the good thing in an half-baked fashion. I saw the ministers and health secretary talking on TV trying to give excuses — not only they are inhumane and poor decision-makers (they could have easily saved the cop’s life), but also appallingly ineloquent.. they were almost unintelligible..

    I saw some animals in Boop’s other video.. those will become TN’s leaders one day.. they would have probably behaved in an even more ghastly fashion. Responds:

    Maybe, the ass*oles were worried the blood would mess up their cars (Govt car is ‘their’ car in India). What other rationale can you have for not taking a seriously injured policeman – with his right leg almost severed by the bomb – to the hospital promptly?

    Wasn’t the refusal of the car owner to transport a sick man the first trigger-point in Anniyan?

    apparently ..the minister was too shocked to help him…and was informed that there were unidentified bombs in the they could not get out of their cars… Responds:

    Panne-rselvam seems like an appropriate name for the minister, at least the first part of the name.

    The video shows several people out of the car, but not near the injured policeman.

    The incident is gross but there is no use of taunting the country’s name by quotes like “Did someone say Mera Bharat Mahaan?” Mahaan or not-so mahaan, country is a non-living thing. The incident marks the futility of the system running, made of people (living things). It is a shame to the very humanity , and not merely a piece of land or country or India or whatever you call it!!

    The question shouldnt be Where it happened??.. The question is Why It Happened.???? and Why isnt someone breaking the rules??? Responds:

    You write: The incident is gross but there is no use of taunting the country’s name by quotes like “Did someone say Mera Bharat Mahaan?”

    Mera Bharat Mahaan is a sarcastic riposte to the people of the barbaric land who seem to think that just because there are a few call centers, a few malls and a few software coolies strutting around that India has arrived.

    Inhumanity is rife in the soil of India.

    Read the various posts in our Incredible India. They are all of a piece and in that context the tragic death of the policeman is hardly a surprise.

    Mera Bharat Mahaan.
