The recklessness of TMT drivers was once again seen when two children were crushed by a TMT bus killing them on the spot. In the last two days the area has seen around 7 deaths. The accident occurred on Pokran road 2 where the two children were on a bicycle when the TMT bus hit them. It is being said that the bus driver’s negligence led to the accident. The family and the relatives of the children took out a morcha to TMT demanding financial assistance and compensation to them. TMC has given its assurance of providing compensation to the family and stated that investigation would be done in the case. According to statistics, Thane has seen seven road accidents in the last two days. While many say that it is due to potholes on the roads and many violating traffic rules, Thane Traffic dept states that awareness is very necessary. Also responsible is TMC which has failed to provide smooth and even roads. With cameraperson Dyaneshwar Mali, Monika Bhosale for NMTV News.
