TENSION erupted at Jagnade Chowk in Nandanvan area after a Maharashtra State Road Transport Corporation (MSRTC) bus knocked dead a bike-borne young man
on Wednesday night. An irate mob resorted to stone-pelting and smashed the windshields of the MSRTC bus (MH-40/
Y-5625) when the driver fled the spot.

A huge crowd gathered at the spot where the young man’s body was lying. Staff from Nandanvan Police Station arrived and quelled the angry mob. Cops sent the body to Government Medical College & Hospital for autopsy. However, the identity of the deceased could not be established so far.
The boy was carrying a college bag on his shoulder. His cellphone, which was found lying at the spot, was locked. The brand-new Hero Splendor motorcycle he was riding had no registration number.

A police officer told ‘The Hitavada’ that the body has been kept in mortuary. “Police are trying to establish the identity of the deceased,” he added.
