A 40-year-old man died when a speeding cluster bus ran over him after ramming his motorcycle from behind, in Delhi’s Seelampur on Saturday night. Police are searching for the bus driver who fled the spot after the accident.

The incident took place around 9.15 pm when Rajkumar Shama, a driver, was on his way home on his motorcycle. On reaching the Seelampur flyover, that was inaugurated on Saturday, Sharma took the slip road. Witnesses told the police that as soon as Sharma entered the slip road below the flyover, a speeding cluster bus hit his bike from behind.
