Sangrur, 25 March 2017. Two nambardars, a village panchayat member and a former panchayat member from Ghunas village in Barnala district were killed when the Santro car in which they were travelling collided with an Orbit bus this morning. The accident took place near their village on the Barnala-Bathinda road.

The deceased were identified as nambardars Sukhjit Singh and Bahadur Singh, panchayat member Jagga Singh and former panchayat member Hardev Singh. The car driver, Jagtar Singh, was critically injured.

“The speeding Orbit bus was on its way to Barnala from Bathinda,” said former sarpanch Gurmukh Singh.

The bodies were extricated from the car with cutters. The police arrested the bus driver, Darshan Singh of Dhade village in Bathinda district, and impounded the vehicle. Fearing that the crowd may damage the bus, cops took it to the DSP’s office at Tapa.

A case was registered against Darshan Singh under Sections 304-A (causing death by negligence), 279 (rash driving) and 337 (causing hurt by act endangering life or safety of others) of the IPC. “We are conducting an investigation,” said Surinder Kumar, DSP.
