IPL 2021: Viral video reveals ambulance stopped for KKR convoy; police name it ‘fake, defamatory’ – WATCH | Cricket News

The 14th version of the Indian Premier League has been suspended indefinitely as a consequence of a steep rise within the COVID-19 cases contained in the bio-bubble affecting a string of gamers and other workers members related with the league. 

Amidst all the event, a video is broadly being circulated, which reveals an ambulance being stopped in Ahmedabad to permit the Kolkata Knight Riders convoy to cross easily. 

The clip, which is a bit over 15 second, reveals three KKR buses being escorted by police vehicles, while the ambulance remained stationary on the site visitors level.  

As per a report in The Indian Express, the video was shot by at Panjrapole crossroads site visitors junction in Ahmedabad.

KKR had been scheduled to play in opposition to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium on May 3, however the match was rescheduled after Knight Riders duo Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier examined positive for COVID-19.  

Meanwhile, reacting to the video, the Joint Commissioner of Police (site visitors), Ahmedabad, Mayanksinh, was quoted within the The Indian Express report as saying, “We have seen the video and are yet to verify whether the traffic at said junction was stopped by Traffic Police or Ahmedabad Police. The police will never stop an ambulance on its way for any VIP convoy, be it of IPL players or any minister. We even don’t stop hearse vans for convoys. The case could be of momentary confusion. This is a malicious attempt to tarnish the image of police with fake and defamatory video.”
