Sarpamitra Dead - knocked by a city bus

Sarpamitra was fatally knocked by a city bus at Yashoda Nagar Wednesday night.

Tension prevailed in MIDC police station area early Thursday morning as a crowd angry at a fatal mishap damaged 10 city buses. The anger erupted after a 32-year-old sarpamitra (snake friend) was fatally knocked by a city bus at Yashoda Nagar Wednesday night.

Sarpamitra's friends and local residents went berserk at Sanjay Nagar on MIDC road demanding monetary compensation for the family of deceased Narayan Das. Das was going home when a rashly driven city bus hit the two-wheeler from behind. Das, who was riding a motorcycle, lost control and fell on the divider while his friend Pankaj Ramteke, riding pillion,was thrown on the other side. Das apparently came under the front wheels of the bus and died on the spot. Ramteke escaped with minor injuries.

Infuriated by the death, enraged relatives and friends of the deceased intercepted 10 city buses plying between Sitabuldi and Hingna on Thursday morning. MIDC police reached the spot immediately and took control of the situation. Police said the residents reportedly started pelting stones on the buses damaging the windscreens, exit windows, etc.

Initially, the family members and relatives had decided not to perform the last rites until the city bus operator provided monetary compensation to the family of the deceased. After a long protest and mediation by the cops, the manager of bus service agreed to pay 15,000 to the bereaved family and also promised to provide a job to the deceased's wife Priyanka.

Senior police officer A Y Nawgire, DCP Zone I, Kailash Kanse reached the spot and pacified the crowd by assuring that they would take action soon. MIDC cops, who had a tough time in controlling the crowd, also asked some shop owners to shut down the shops to prevent damage by crowd. The agitated crowd and local leaders protested increasing accidents involving city buses. "Often we come across reports of these buses killing people. Everybody is aware about rash driving by their drivers. This time we won't let them go," said a neighbour Vidyadhar Deshmukh.
