Bangalore: The driver of the school bus who absconded after mistakenly crushing a child to death in Bangalore on Thursday has been arrested. Three-year-old Mohammad Faisal Noorulla died after he was hit by his own school bus at around 4 pm. Faisal was an LKG student of the Bright School in Thanisandra area of Bangalore.
The boy had just got off the bus when the bus driver tried to reverse the vehicle, hitting the child. On realising the kid was wounded, he took the child, who had suffered serious head injuries, and put him in the bus and rushed away. He abandoned the bus a few minutes later, locked the door of the bus and fled.
Three other school students, who were in the bus, cried out for help. A passer-by, Uma, who saw the children at first didnt realise what had happened.
A few minutes later she opened the bus and realised the plight of children and took the injured Faisal to a hospital....more
