Delhi road mishap: HC summons bus operators

October 08, 2007 11:35 IST

Terming the killing of seven people by an over-speeding Blueline bus as shocking, the Delhi high court has summoned the counsel for NCT government and Blueline operators on Monday for an urgent hearing on the matter.

"It is becoming shocking day by day," a Division Bench of Justice Mukul Mudgal and Reva Khetrapal said about the accident on Sunday involving a Blueline bus.

The bench said, "Now, we have to withdraw all directions in favour of Blueline bus operators."

The court's direction came after amicus curiae Anup J Bhambani brought the accident to its notice and sought appropriate directions to the government and Blueline operators.

Five women, a four-year-old boy and a man were killed and eight others, including five children, seriously injured when the bus ran over them as they were crossing the Delhi-Agra road at Ali village in south Delhi.
