This feature will not be available at night.First Aid Kit did not lastAfter buying a bike, due to the negligence of government departments, the first aid kit was not installed on them. The kit was not available even after five months. At the same time, it was time to serve the new bike. The first service was held in October last year. It is being told that now another service has been done even before the launch.Overdose of more than 50 yearsIn the past, the Delhi Cats Union has expressed its opposition to the bike ambulance.
