Speeding tempo kills 2 DTC bus drivers, 6 hurt”

Two men were killed and six injured when a tempo that was allegedly speeding rammed into a DTC bus parked on the side of the road, in northwest Delhi's Rani Bagh late Thursday night.

The incidents occurred when the low-floor DTC bus was being repaired near the Madhuban Chowk underpass, they said.

"Bus driver Sunil Kumar, 32, and helper Pramod Kumar, 37, were killed on the spot. The mechanic took the biker and Sumit to a hospital", a senior police officer said. Police said the victims were taken to different hospitals, where Sunil and Pramod were declared dead. While Pramod Kumar was the one who was driving the DTC bus, Sunil Kumar was called in to get some food.

Mr Sumit and the injured motorcyclist were rushed to a hospital and the DTC sent additional help to fix the snag and manage the traffic.

Around 12.30 AM, a speeding mini truck rammed into the bus, injuring Sunil and Pramod severely. Driver Pramod Kumar and conductor Sumit got down and found the bus had developed a major snag.Pramod called the DTC engineers, who sent three mechanics, Sukhpreet Singh, Mohammad Abrar and Ananda Nandi, to fix the vehicle.

The truck driver, 54-year-old Karan, was arrested after being discharged from the hospital.

The last day of the proceedings saw Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia lashing out at Gupta over his remarks on the death of two DTC employees and his demand that government pay Rs 1 crore compensation to the kin of each of the deceased.

Addressing a press conference at her office in the Civic Centre, she also said family members of the victims should be offered jobs.

Sisodia and Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot promised that compensation will be given to families of the deceased and they're also working on to giving a government job to one member from each family.
