Money will not substitute Sub-Inspector Vetrivel precious life.
Tamil Speech by S.V.Ramani.
The brutal murder of a sub-inspector of police in Tirunelveli district of southern Tamil Nadu on Thursday was shocking, here is something that would shock one even more. Top officials and ministers were present at the spot where the inspector lay writhing due to injuries caused by an explosion from a crude bomb and sickles, but it took 20-30 minutes before he could be shifted to a vehicle. By then it was too late. Sub-inspector Vetrivel, father of two, was brought dead to the Tirunelveli Medical College Hospital.
State health minister MRK Panneerselvam, health secretary VK Subburaj, director of public health S Elango, environment minister TPM Mohideen Khan and Tirunelveli collector M Jayaraman reached the spot in a convoy, minutes after the SI was brutally attacked by a seven-member gang. Television footage aired on Friday showed chilling visuals of the SI writhing and groaning in pain on the road while officials and ministers stood around, apparently waiting for an ambulance.
Vetrivel was even seen sitting up, but the footage was blurred to avoid showing the badly wounded lower part of his body. Panneerselvam and other officials, meanwhile, were busy talking over mobile phones, possibly trying to get an ambulance. None seemed to have had the presence of mind to shift the wounded policeman to hospital in one of several vehicles standing by. The scene was captured by a local videographer engaged to cover the ministers’ visit.
The people were standing idle as if they were waiting for someone to come – may be God. If the vehicles and people standing there could not help the SI, it was most unfortunate thing. Will they expect the same treatment when one of them lies on the road bleeding and fighting for his life which would last for few minutes? Everyone at the spot must ask himself. We could see police officers too waiting – were they waiting for the orders from the political class?
This shows the deterioration of values and the love for other human beings. EVEN CRORES OF MONEY WAS GIVEN TO THE FAMILY MEMBERS OF Vetrivel, whether the money will bring a beloved son to his father and a faithful husband to his wife and a well wisher to his son?.
Time to reevaluate our next generation should be with mankind with every human being.
