New Delhi: A minor girl was crushed to death and her elder brother injured when a speeding dumper hit them while overtaking a bus in south Delhi on Friday.

The accident took place at about 7 am when Raju, 14, and his sister Ishrat, 12, were going to school in Sarita Vihar near Shaheen Bagh.

“When Ishrat and Raju were walking near the footpath, the dumper lost balance due to a collision with the bus. It crushed Raju and Ishrat,” deputy commissioner of police Chinmoy Biswal said.

The girl was dragged for a few metres beneath the truck and was severely injured. She succumbed to her injuries and her body was kept at AIIMS for post-mortem.

Her brother sustained leg injury and bruises on the forehead and is admitted to Apollo Hospital, the police said. The two lived in a slum and studied in a government school in Noor Nagar. The victims were students of Class 6 at a government school.

The accused, Pushpender, 28, was arrested. He was carrying building material in the truck and was going towards Noida.
