They quickly parked the scooter and reached the spot where they found a boy shivering as if he was having a seizure.
“We were on our way home after gymming and had halted at a traffic signal near Karishma Chowk when we heard a loud crash. I saw a man lying unconscious and bleeding profusely. People said the bus driver had jumped the signal and the crowd was busy yelling at him but no one bothered to help the victim,” said Rutuja Budukh.
Sania Kulkarni said, “We called for an ambulance but when we saw that the victim’s condition was worsening, we put him in an autorickshaw. The driver refused to take him to a hospital. No one stepped forward after he demanded that someone accompany him. So we decided to go with him”.
On their way to hospital they saw an ambulance an Barwerkar was shifted in it and was given the first aid. Both the women and hospital administration then contacted his parents, who were very grateful towards the girls. The police was also polite. The case has also been filed against the PMPML bus driver for rash driving
