10-yr-old among two killed in road accidents across Delhi

PUBLISHED ON JUL 04, 2016 08:57 AM IST

NEW DELHI: Two people, including a 10-year-old girl, were killed and one sustained severe injuries in two separate road accidents reported from the Capital in the last 24 hours.

In the first incident, a 10-year-old girl was killed and her father sustained injuries when the bike they were travelling on was hit by a speeding DTC bus in southwest Delhi’s Dabri area.

The girl, Pratiksha, was crushed to death under the rear wheel of the bus while her father, PK Daas, a lawyer, suffered injuries and has been admitted to a hospital.

According to the police, the duo was returning to their home in Rohini from Dwarka when the incident took place. When they reached Dabri, a speeding DTC bus hit their bike from behind. Pratiksha was flung in the air and fell on the ground and her father skid for several metres with the bike before coming to a halt. The bus then ran over Pratiksha, police said.

The driver of the bus, Rajbeer, fled the scene. A passerby made a PCR call and informed the police. “A team was formed to trace the driver. Rajbeer’s details were taken from the DTC office and he was arrested later . A case of rash and negligent driving causing death has been registered against him,” an officer said.

In the second incident, a 36-year-old man was crushed to death by a truck while he was cycling back home from Gokulpuri. The incident was reported from Khajuri on Sunday morning.

According to the police, the truck was carrying metro pillars to a construction site. The driver lost control of his vehicle and ran over the cyclist. He was nabbed later.

“It appears that the truck was overloaded. The driver said that he could not see the cyclist ahead and by the time he saw him, he could not apply the brakes and crushed him under the wheels,” a senior police officer said.
