Thalassery: A complaint was filed with the Thalassery police station stating that a vehicle service station objected to service a car smeared with blood stains. The car was stained with blood after it was used to save an injured man in a road accident.
Though the police directed the service station staff to clean the vehicle, they didn’t budge initially. Finally, the sub-inspector had to come in person to clear the confusion.
The incident came to light after the car owner posted his experience on Facebook.
Car owner Rusfeedh faced the bad experience from a service centre in Thalassery on Sunday afternoon. He took injured Dr Zakhariya Swallahi to Thalassery Indira Gandhi cooperative hospital in his car. Rusfeedh didn’t think about his car before carrying the injured man.
From the wound on Zakhariya’s head, the rear seat of the car and the upholstery were stained with blood. After admitting the injured in the hospital, Rusfeedh reached the service station to clean up the car before the blood dried up. As the service staff hesitated to clean the car, the owner contacted police. Though police directed the service staff over phone to clean the vehicle, they didn’t budge. Following that sub-inspector Vinu Mohan reached the spot and directed them to clean the vehicle.
Rusfeedh mentioned in his Facebook post that the car was cleaned but not done perfectly.
Dr Zakhariya had succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.
