Venkatesh came under the van’s wheel and died of massive head injuries. The girl escaped unhurt. Neither
Venkatesh nor the girl was wearing helmet, police said.
The motorbike’s fuel tank leaked as it was dragged some distance away. The two-wheeler then got stuck in the van’s rear wheels and caught fire. A part of the van was also engulfed in flames.
The van driver put the brakes on and evacuated the schoolchildren. The motorbike was charred while the van was partially burnt. The police and firefighters rushed to the spot and doused the fire. Alternative arrangements were made to send the children back home.
