On saturday seven people were killed and 45 others were injured when a bus fell off a bridge in Jharkhand’s Hazaribagh district.
Police said that there were two bridges on the road falling under Tatijharia police station area, in which heavy vehicles did not move on one bridge, but it was used by the bus driver.
All the Sikh community travelers were going from Giridih to Ranchi to attend a religious program. Prima facie it appears that the driver took a turn to save a cart vendor on the bridge and fell into a dry river breaking the parapet. Seven people died on the spot and 11 were injured, Hazaribagh SP Manoj Ranjan Chothe said.
