A 22-year-old woman was on Friday killed after a BEST bus that was reversing pinned her against a stationary one at Kurla in central Mumbai, police said.

Shaikh, a bank employee, was rushed to Bhabha hospital nearby but died during treatment, the official added.

The incident happened at around 9:30am at a BEST bus depot close to Kurla railway station, the official informed.

A case has been registered and the driver of the bus that was reversing has been detained, he added.
