In what comes as a horrific development, India Wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant’s car collided with a partition wall, then caught fire. Fortunately, he managed to jump out of the car and was taken to a local hospital. The 25-year-old suffered serious injuries and is in stable condition. However, if we are to believe the reports, some miscreants looted him and escaped from the scene instead of helping him. According to a Crictracker report, a few men reached the scene of the accident and took advantage of his injuries by looting money from one of his bags.
Despite being in such a deplorable condition, Pant had to contact the authorities and the ambulance himself. People on social media are furious about the looting. “The fact that despite being in an accident and in such a condition, Rishabh Pant broke the window of the car and came out. Not only this, but the locals looted his money and he himself called an ambulance. Kudos to the strength of this 25 year old man. A true warrior,” one Twitter user wrote.

On the contrary, a video doing the rounds on social media shows Rishabh Pant drenched in blood being helped by locals with blankets. PTI news agency reports that the driver and other staff of a passing Haryana Roadways bus helped the cricketer get out of the burning car and that the car was completely charred in the accident.
“When he was taken to our hospital he was fully conscious and I spoke to him. He wanted to surprise his mother and went back home,” said Dr. Sushil Nagar, who treated Pant in an emergency, told PTI news agency.
