Children were immediately rescued by shopkeepers, while the bus driver and a conductor escaped with minor burns. Children were living in the same locality where the incident occurred.

Area people alleged that they had already complained to the PSPCL department about the hanging power cables but no official took immediate action due to which this incident occurred.
The police have launched a probe in the case.
