Dewas, February 27

Two persons were killed and 36 injured as a bus overturned in Madhya Pradesh's Dewas district in the wee hours of Saturday, a police official said.

The incident occurred at Sirolya village, located approximately 15 km from Dewas district headquarters, around 1 am, he said.

"The driver of the bus, which was returning from a marriage ceremony, lost control over the vehicle due to which it overturned," Superintendent of Police Shiv Dayal said.

On being alerted, a police team rushed to the spot and took the injured to Dewas district hospital, he said.

One of the injured, Narayan Singh, died on way to the hospital, while another, Rakesh Malviya, succumbed to his injuries at a hospital in Indore, the SP said.

Of the 36 injured, six are in a serious condition. They have been admitted to Indore hospital, Dayal said, adding that others were discharged after primary treatment.

A case was registered against the bus driver at Barotha police Station and further investigation is under way, he said.

The bodies were handed over to the families of the deceased after post-mortem. PTI
