Bus falls into 30 feet-deep river in Hazaribagh: 7 Sikh pilgrims killed, over 22 injured; dead body cut with a gas cutter
In Jharkhand's Hazaribagh, a bus went out of control and fell into the river 30 feet below the bridge. 7 people have died. More than 22 people have been injured in the accident. There were 52 people on the bus. The seriously injured have been admitted to Sheikh Bhikhari Medical Hospital in Hazaribagh.
The dead and injured are being told of Giridih. All the people of the Sikh community were on the bus. We're going to attend the religious kirtan organized at Gurdwara located on Ratu Road in Ranchi from Giridih by bus. Meanwhile, an accident happened on the Siwane river in Hazaribagh. There was less water in the river. The bodies were stuck in the bus. After much effort, the bodies were removed by cutting the body of the bus with a gas cutter. The condition of the driver and a child is critical. Both have been referred to RIMS.
When the injured were brought to the Hazaribagh Medical College and Hospital, the negligence of the management came to the fore. Neither the Superintendent nor the Deputy Superintendent reached the hospital. In a hurry, the administration had to admit the seriously injured to a private hospital.
According to eyewitnesses, the Shivshakti bus coming from Giridih suddenly became unbalanced near the Siwan river bridge of Tati Jharia. After this, breaking the barricading from the bridge, fell into the river. The cause of the accident is yet to be ascertained. Prima facie the matter of brake failure is coming to the fore.
After the incident, the injured Nagendra Singh told that all the people of the Sikh community are on the bus. All were going from Giridih to Ranchi to participate in the religious kirtan program. He told that two members of his family including his wife have died on the spot.
