A contract sweeper of the GHMC was run over by a TSRTC bus near Bible House on RP Road in Secunderabad this morning. The woman was identified as 45-year-old G. Padma of Bansilalpet.
Police said Padma, who works at Buddha Bhavan, left for work early in the morning. At about 10 am, she was returning with her son Ravi Kumar on his bike to go to a ration shop. The duo was coming from Buddha Bhavan towards RP Road and stopped at the traffic signal at Bible House along with other vehicles. When the signal turned green and all vehicles moved ahead, the RTC bus hit the bike, with Padma, who was riding pillion, falling down and getting crushed under the rear wheel of the bus. She died on the spot. The body was shifted to the morgue while a case was booked and is being investigated. (NSS)
