Saturday, 15 January 2022 | Staff Reporter | JANJGIR-CHAMPA

At least 15 policemen were injured on Friday when a bus in which they were travelling collided with a truck in Chhattisgarh’s Janjgir-Champa district, the police said.

The bus was ferrying police personnel who had been roped in for Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel’s security duty for his visit to Janjgir-Champa district, an official said.

Baghel's trip was cancelled due to bad weather, an official statement said.

The accident took place near Kanasda bridge, Janjgir-Champa Superintendent of Police Abhishek Pallava said. The bus collided with the truck coming from the opposite direction.

The injured personnel were sent back to Bilaspur after receiving first aid treatment, the official said.

The truck driver, Jai Prakash Singh (45), a resident of West Bengal, also sustained injuries and was admitted to a hospital.
