The man’s head was caught under the bus, and he died on the spot. A crowd of onlookers quickly gathered at the scene.


The police have taken possession of the body and sent it for post-mortem. Salman, the younger brother of the deceased, identified the victim as 40-year-old Rizwan. Rizwan, a resident of Daliganj, was employed as a peon at an AC plant office on Campbell Road.

According to his brother, Rizwan was married four years ago and was the sole breadwinner for his family, which includes his wife, parents, and two younger brothers. 


The grieving family expressed their shock and financial concerns following Rizwan’s death, insisting on strict action against the negligent driver and seeking compensation.
