Three-year-old Aditya Yadav was run over by a BEST bus at Byculla on Saturday. He was rushed to JJ Hospital but declared dead on arrival.
Aditya lived at the railway colony in Wadi Bunder near Sandhurst Road. His father, Ramjeet, is a railway employee.
At 10.30am, Aditya's parents took him to the Byculla railway hospital. While Aditya was being administered polio drops, his mother underwent a routine check-up.
As they stepped out of the hospital, Aditya, who was unescorted, was run over by a speeding BEST bus. Locals caught the driver, Anandrao Mohite, and handed him over to the Byculla police. "Aditya was their first child after 10 years of marriage," said a neighbour.
"Mohite has been booked for causing death due to negligence," said Jaywant R Sarmokadam, assistant commissioner of police (Agripada division).
