The horrific accident was caught on the CCTV camera installed outside the tour and travel office in Pawanpuri. The video clearly shows Ramprasad riding his two-wheeler at a normal speed when the bus driver lost control while parking and hit him. He was crushed between the bus and the divider.

His family members said that Ramprasad worked in the Water Department of the Indore division and was on his way to work when the incident occurred. They alleged that the bus belonged to a tour and travel company and that the conductor was driving the bus instead of the driver at the time of the incident. 

According to the police, the deceased has been identified as Ramprasad Maurya, a resident of Pawanpuri. Maurya worked at the water department in Indore, and his retirement was due this month.

‘Conductor was driving, alleges family’

They added, “The conductor was reversing the bus to park it near the office when he lost control and rammed into Ramprasad’s two-wheeler. He was trapped between the bus and the divider.”

In the video, it is also visible that the bus driver (conductor) and other office employees did not come to his rescue but fled the scene. 

Later, he was taken to the hospital but was declared dead on arrival. The family members said that Ramprasad was about to retire on July 31. 

The police reached the spot, began a probe to ascertain the circumstances under which the incident occurred and seized the bus.
