Police said a man named Sonu Tiwari lodged a complaint on Sunday in which he alleged that the ambulance driver charged ₹9,000 to shift his elder brother, who had fever, from Govindpuri to Apollo Hospital which is around seven kilometers.
The police sent a dummy client to the driver and asked him to ferry a patient from Majida hospital to Apollo hospital, a senior police officer said.
The driver demanded ₹9,000 to ferry the patient for a distance of ten kilometers and ₹5,000 extra for waiting at the hospital parking. After bargaining, he agreed for ₹8,500, the officer said.
The police nabbed Faizan as soon as he accepted ₹8,500 cash from the dummy customer, police said. PTI NIT NIT TDS TDS
