India: Luxury bus collides with oil tanker, 7 charred to death in Thane district

29th Jan 2014

Mumbai, (Hindustan Times ): At least seven people were charred to death and 11 others injured when a luxury bus collided with a diesel tanker near Thane district’s Kude village on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway early on Wednesday, police said.

According to the police, the luxury bus was going to Ahmedabad from Pune when it collided with the tanker at Kude village within the Manor police station limits in Palghar taluka.

The bus immediately caught fire after the collision.

“The mishap occurred at around 1.30am at Kude village, about 10 km from Manor. Ten of the injured passengers are being treated at Manor rural hospital while one has been moved to Thane. Those who were injured have sustained medium to minor injuries,” said an official.

He also said that the seven charred bodies have been recovered from the bus.

 

“The bodies could not be identified as they are charred beyond recognition. The bodies have been sent for post-mortem. The district administration is in the process of contacting the bus operator to get the names of the passengers travelling in the bus,” Thane district collector P Velrasu told PTI.

The tanker belongs to Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited, one of the largest public sector oil marketing companies in India, and was carrying diesel towards Hazira in Gujarat.

The highway from Shirsad (Virar) to Manor was closed for three hours since 2am. Traffic was diverted from Wada-Bhiwandi road.

In May last year, 14 people were killed and 40 injured in a similar accident involving a luxury bus and tanker close to this spot.
