The incident took place near a traffic signal on Sarai Jullena Marg. The deceased has been identified as Nizamuddin of Jamia Nagar. The mishap took place while Nizamuddin was waiting at the signal.

“Nizamuddin fell off the bike and sustained severe injuries. His brother, who witnessed the accident, rushed to the spot. He was taken to the Holy Family Hospital where he was declared brought dead,” police said.
The bus was plying on route No. 534 between Mehrauli and Anand Vihar.
Dilip Singh, the errant bus driver, has been arrested and a case of rash and negligent driving, causing death, has been registered against him, police said. This is the second such accident in the past four days.
