Haryana School Bus Accident

In a tragic incident in Haryana’s Mahendragarh district, six children lost their lives and more than 20 others were injured when a school bus overturned. The bus, which was carrying 40 children to GL Public School, met with the accident despite it being Eid-ul-Fitr holiday. The incident sent shockwaves through the community and garnered nationwide attention.

The accident happened close to Unhani village in Kanina at approximately 8:30 am. The bus was transporting about 40 children from primary to secondary classes to the G.L. Public School. Mahendragarh Deputy Commissioner Monika Gupta stated that the private school was open on Eid, and the district education officer has submitted a request to the state government to revoke its recognition.

Haryana Chief Minister Nayab Singh Saini assured that strict action would be taken against those responsible for the accident, including the school authorities. It was reported that the bus driver, who was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol, was promptly arrested following the incident. Subsequent investigations revealed that the bus had an expired fitness certificate, raising concerns about the safety standards and regulations in place.

According to reports, a class 12 student has lodged a First Information Report (FIR) against the driver. The student mentioned that despite their requests to slow down, the driver ignored them and even intimidated them. The FIR stated, “The driver disregarded the students’ pleas to reduce the speed of the vehicle. He reportedly intimidated the children.”

The incident served as a wake-up call for authorities to prioritize the safety of school children during transportation. It highlighted the urgent need for comprehensive measures to prevent similar accidents in the future, ensuring that children can travel to and from school safely and without fear of harm.
