A Class 1 student of Indian School Wadi Kabir has been admitted to the Khoula Hospital with broken pelvis, damage to liver and internal bleeding, after she met with an accident involving a bus on Sunday afternoon.
“The accident occurred when the student named Malavika was trying to get down from the bus near her home. Her school bag got stuck between the doors of the bus. Without noticing this, the driver moved the bus ahead dragging along the girl,” Malavika’s father said from Khoula Hospital.
“The girl has been bleeding since yesterday. However, her condition is better now. If the driver had taken a little care this would not have happened,” the injured girl’s father said.
An official from the transporting company said they are quite worried over the accident.
“We assisted the parents in admitting the child to the hospital. It’s an unfortunate incident,” the driver said.
When contacted, Indian School Wadi Kabir’s principal said the school is in touch with the parents and are praying for the speedy recovery of the child.
The parents have lodged a complaint with the police.
