On Monday evening, the bus carrying students was plying on Picchanagere- Siddenahalli Road when the driver took a sharp turn at a curve. As the bus door was not closed, Raksha, who was sitting in the seat next to the door, lost her balance and fell out of the bus.

The rear wheel of the bus ran over her head, killing her on the spot.

The girl’s father, Swamy, a farmer, charged the driver and caretaker of the bus with negligence. “The driver was driving in a rash manner, without ensuring the door was shut, while the caretaker failed to ensure the safety of the children,” he alleged. Kanakapura Rural police arrested the driver and seized the bus.
