Two persons were killed and 10 others injured when a bus hit a tree in West Bengal's Burdwan district on Saturday, police sources said.

The bus was on its way to Arambagh from Burdwan when the driver lost control over the vehicle near Pursona and hit the tree, sources said.

Armila Bibi (44) and Sona Bibi died in the accident while the injured have been rushed to hospital, they said.

Local people allege that the road near Pursona was badly maintained and the driver lost control due to bad road conditions.

They later put up a road blockade demanding repair of the road.
