Panipat, October 12

Two persons were killed and 14 sustained injuries when a private bus fell into a pond after the driver apparently suffered an epileptic seizure near Bhainswal village chowk on the Barsat road here today. The deceased included the driver.

The police with help of locals rescued the passengers from the pond and shifted them to the general hospital. 

Sandeep, a passenger, said the bus carrying around 65 passengers was on its way to Panipat from Barsat village. The bus was travelling at a high speed, when its driver Mukesh lost control of the vehicle and it landed upside down in the pond along the Barsat road.

SP Sumit Kumar and DSP Headquarters and DSP Traffic Satish Kumar Vats along with other officials reached the spot. The rescue operation continued for over two hours. Deputy Commissioner Sumedha Kataria later visited the injured at the hospital.

The Quilla police have registered a case under various Sections of IPC against the driver and started investigation into the matter, said the DSP. The cause of the accident would be ascertained once the autopsy report is out, he said. The bodies were handed over to the families after postmortem, he said.
