In a tragic incident, a toddler sitting in a school bus died after he peeped out of the window of his school bus and allegedly hit his head against a pillar in Ghaziabad.
The victim has been identified as Anurag Bharadwaj (11) who lived with his parents in Modinagar of Ghaziabad.
The boy’s family registered a complaint against school authorities, principal and school bus driver for murder.
As per police, the bus picked up the boy at 7 am on April 20. The boy was feeling nauseated and put his head out to get some air just as the bus took a turn, and he hit his head against a pillar. Anurag was rushed to the nearest hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
After the incident, the driver of the bus is absconding.
The family has alleged that the school withheld information about the incident and he died due to direct negligence of school authorities.
