A police officer has been suspended following reports that those injured in accidents were allegedly sent to a private hospital instead of government ones in Karnal district of Haryana, officials said Tuesday.
Ramba police post In-charge Jagbir Singh has been placed under suspension, police said.
The action was taken after a video went viral on social media, showing an ambulance of a private hospital parked on the premises of police post located on Karnal-Indri state highway.
There were reports that there was allegedly a nexus between police and the private hospital for ferrying patients injured in accidents on the highway to a particular private hospital for treatment.
"An inquiry has been marked in this regard," Karnal Superintendent of Police Surinder Singh Bhoria said.
