An 11-year-old girl died after she was run over by her school bus immediately after she got down from the vehicle near her residence in the city. The police have arrested Baldev Singh, the driver of the school bus.


The deceased child has been identified as Arshnoor Kaur, a student of a private school and a resident of Partap Avenue.

The police have booked the accused on the basis of the complaint lodged by Manjinder Singh, the father of the deceased child.

The incident occurred on Friday afternoon near the residence of the deceased child where the bus dropped her daily.
