NEW DELHI: The driver of the Cluster Scheme bus, who had mowed down three people, including a minor in northeast Delhi, has been arrested.
The driver, Pushpender (35) from Bulandhshahr, has claimed the accident occured due to a brake failure, police said. The bus was going from Sarai Kale Khan to Nand Nagri.
“The driver was in an inebriated state. He claims he tried to stop the bus by hitting a divider as the brakes had failed. We will conduct a mechanical examination to verify this,” said Ved Prakash Surya, DCP (North East). Eyewitnesses told police the bus was coming down the ITI flyover near Nand Nagri in high speed when it lost balance on Thursday.
The deceased have been identified as Ravinder (22), Karan (12) and Amar Singh (47). The injured include Karan’s parents, Satish (45) and Kanchan (35), and Sujeet (16). Vasu Dev, Satish’s father, said, “Their condition is much better but we haven’t told Kanchan about Karan’s death.”
