The shocking incident was reported at Garha police station on Saturday, after the victim and his family members had arrived to lodge a complaint against the accused.
Instead of rushing him to the nearest hospital, the police seemed busy in completing the legal formalities even as the man stood there with a knife in his back. He was finally taken to a police station after much delay.
The irresponsible behaviour by the Madhya Pradesh police is receiving backlash. The question here is, Is Completing formalities more important than the treatment of the victim?
