Brothers fatally knocked down

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, MAY 11. Two brothers travelling on a scooter were killed when an overspeeding DTC bus hit them from behind on Pankha Road in North-West Delhi today. Angered over the accident, area residents hurled stones at buses running in the area, damaging the windscreens and windows of four DTC buses and one bus under DTC operation.

The accident took place around 9-45 a.m. when the DTC bus plying on route 761 -- from Azadpur to Manglapuri -- hit the scooter from behind. Mustakeen (32) and his brother, Dilshad (19), who were on the scooter, sustained serious injuries. They were rushed to a local hospital where they were declared dead on arrival.

Meanwhile, angry area residents overpowered Hem Chand, the driver of the DTC bus, and thrashed him badly. The residents blocked the traffic and started hurling stones on buses passing by the area. Meanwhile, the police reached the spot and appeased the mob.

Hem Chand, who had sustained serious injuries, was handed over to the police, who got him admitted to a hospital. A case of causing death due to rash and negligent driving has been registered at the Rajouri Garden police station. The police said Mustakeen, a resident of Om Vihar, worked as a driver, while his brother was a technician.

In another accident reported last night, two young men were killed after the motorcycle they were riding hit a stationary under-repair truck on Mandir Marg in New Delhi. They were identified as Vikas Tokas (23) and Pradeep Tokas (22), both residents of Munirka in South-West Delhi. The incident occurred when they were headed to Karol Bagh at great speed. The two were rushed to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital where they were declared dead on arrival.
