Telangana: Three children lost their lives as a school bus hit a divider in Telangana state on Wednesday. This incident took place in Rajanna, Sircilla District near the Vemulawada Bus Depot, as a school bus carrying 26 students from the Vaageeshwari Talent school tried to avoid a collision as a Ganesha Procession was coming towards the bus. In an attempt to avoid the collision, the bus hit a divider resulting in which 3 students were thrown out of the window.

Three children identified as Kasaram Manichandana Rai (age 15), and G Deekshitha (8) succumbed to the injuries on the spot while P Rishi (7) died while undergoing treatment.

All the other students with severe injuries were shifted to a local hospital and are undergoing treatment.

Health Minister of Telangana state, Mr Eatala Rajender rushed to the hospital as he was in Karimnagar to make sure that everything is going accordingly.
