The 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) has been put on hold after the bio-bubble ruptured and players and other staff tested positive for COVID-19.
Now, in the midst of all the development, a video is widely released showing an ambulance stopped in Ahmedabad to allow the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) convoy to pass smoothly.
According to the 15-second clip, three KKR buses were being escorted by police vehicles, while the ambulance remained stationary at the traffic point.
According to a report in UK Time News, the video was shot at the Panjrapole crossroads in Ahmedabad.
KKR was scheduled to play against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on May 3, but after the duo, Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier tested positive for COVID-19, the match was postponed.

Meanwhile, reacting to the video, Joint Police Commissioner (Traffic) Ahmedabad, Mayanksinh, was quoted in UK Time News saying, “We have seen the video and have not yet verified whether the traffic at said junction has been stopped by traffic police or Ahmedabad police. The police will never stop an ambulance en route for a VIP convoy, whether they are IPL players or We don’t even stop the vans for convoys. The matter could be momentarily confusing. This is a malicious attempt to tarnish the police image with fake defamatory videos.
