Bus runs over ITI student after bike hits him in Nizamuddin
A 24-year-old final year student of the Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in south Delhi’s Hazrat Nizamuddin was killed when an allegedly speeding Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) low floor non-AC bus ran over him while he was crossing a road opposite the college on Thursday afternoon.
The final-year motor mechanical student, identified as Honey Meena, was first hit by an allegedly speeding black Hero Splendor bike. As he fell on the road, a DTC bus on route number 405 (plying between Badarpur border and Mori Gate), which was moving behind the bike ran over Meena’s head, crushing it badly and killing him on the spot, the police said.
Police said the bus driver stopped the bus and rushed to help the injured man. A police team reached the mishap spot and rushed the man to AIIMS Trauma Centre, where he was declared brought dead.
A case of rash and negligent driving was registered and the DTC bus driver, identified as Naval Kishore Meena, was arrested. The biker who was involved in the accident fled the spot, leaving behind his bike.
Police have confiscated the bus and the bike. A case was registered on the complaint of Meena’s classmate, Azmat Ansari, the prime eyewitness. “I had crossed the road and Meena was walking behind me when the biker hit him. He fell and before he could get up, the DTC bus’ rear right tyre ran over his head,” he said.
Meena is survived by his parents, brother and grandfather. His family lives in south Delhi’s Madangir.
