Delayed arrival of ambulance, police

Since it was Somvati Amavasya, there was a large crowd of people who came to take holy baths in the Narmada river at Dharampuri. As a result, a large number of police officers were also on duty.

Following the accident, neither the police nor the ambulance arrived on time. According to witnesses, the ambulance arrived after about 30 minutes. However, Nauman had already been taken to the hospital in a small loading vehicle. People staged a sit-in and set fire to the bus after the police and ambulance failed to arrive.
