| | New Delhi | in Sunday Pioneer

A 12-year-old boy was killed while his 10-year-old friend got injured when a School bus of British School Chanakyapuri mowed them down while they were playing on the roadside near Vivekananda Camp in the area, on Friday evening. The driver has been arrested by the police and a case under IPC Sections 304A was registered for causing death due to negligence and rash driving.

According to the police, the incident took place around 5 pm, when the driver of the bus was parking the vehicle.

“One child, identified as Rahul, son of a labourer, was knocked down and sustained critical head injuries. Another child, Jaideep, who was also playing nearby, also got hurt. They were rushed to a hospital where the doctors declared Rahul dead, while Jaideep was admitted for treatment,” said a senior police officer.

Police said that Rahul's family was informed and his body was sent for a post mortem. “A case under IPC Sections 304A was registered for causing death due to negligence and rash driving. The accused driver, Reshampal, who is on the job on contract basis, was arrested from the spot,” police said.

Just five days ago, a 14-year-old child was also crushed under tractor carrying debris in northwest Delhi late on Monday evening. A day before this, a 41-year-old auto rickshaw driver was killed after an SUV hit his vehicle in south Delhi's Safdarjung Enclave area. Delhi's Chanakyapuri is a diplomatic enclave and a high-security area as many foreign embassies are located here.
