Sushil Kumar said that he had no idea of Rishabh Pant as he did not watch cricket. He further said that the car broke the barricade and went skidding for about 200 meters.

“I saw the car came & hit on divider & Rishabh was badly injured & he had come out of car & then I stopped bus & immediately went to him, I made him lie down in a safe place & wrapped him with my sheet & then call an ambulance.”

“There were no clothes on Rishabh’s body, so I wrapped my sheet on him. I didn’t know that he is a Cricketer & he is Rishabh Pant because I don’t watch cricket. That time I just felt that I should help them,” he added.

The conductor of the bus, Paramjeet, told Cricbuzz, “It happened at around 5.14-15 AM, right in front of our eyes. We pulled him out and we thought he was dead. We actually kept him on the divider. At that stage, the vehicle exploded and we all moved away from the burning car. Soon, he became conscious and told us no one else is in the car. I asked him who he was and he told us he is an India cricketer.”

Pharmacist reveals Pant was in a ‘lot of pain’

Aaj Tak also spoke to the Pharmacist from 108 Ambulance who took Pant from the accident spot to the hospital. Monu Kumar, who was on duty revealed that the bus driver had taken the 25-year-old out of the vehicle. Pant was soon helped onto the stretcher and into the ambulance

Once in the ambulance, Kumar confirmed the patient’s details and it was revealed to be Rishabh Pant.  He was hurt in the eye, bleeding from the nose, his back was peeled, and there was also an injury to his leg, Kumar revealed.

Rishabh told the pharmacist, “Brother, I am in a lot of pain, first give me some pain injection”.

Monu took permission from 108 and gave him a pain injection. He was then taken to Saksham Hospital for primary treatment.

Social media has erupted with thank you messages to the good samaritans. However, the Haryana state employees said that they helped out due to humanitarian courtesy.

“We do not want any awards. We are employees of the Haryana government and we did what we had to, or any human would do. We will be happy if Rishabh Pant gets well soon and his Ballah does the talking again,” said Sushil.
