Bereaved family demands punishment to accused, school management
Budshah Nagar mishap
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Feb 17: Family of a KG student who was killed in an accident at Budshah Nagar on Monday, have urged the authorities to give stern punishment to the accused and the school management for their alleged negligence.
The family of the deceased Burhan Ahmad son of Javid Ahmad Laway of Budshah Nagar said on the fateful day, he was returning from his school at Humhama when the accident occurred.
“We had impressed upon the school authorities to ensure that Burhan should be dropped by the school bus and handed over to his grandmother at a particular bus stop at Budshah Nagar. But the bus driver dropped him at other place and even did not care to help him to cross the road. As a result he was hit by another vehicle and critically injured,” the parents said.
Quoting witnesses, they alleged that bus driver even did not bother to take Burhan to hospital. “Though some civilians rushed him to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, the doctors maintain that if Burhan would have reached hospital a few minutes earlier his life could have been saved,” the family said.
“Besides punishment to the motorist who hit Burhan, we urge the authorities to take action against the school management for negligence. As an insult to our injury, not a single person from the school management extended even condolence to us,” they added.
They have appealed Chief Minister Omar Abdullah to look into the matter.
