LKG students’ death: School bus driver’s license suspended
Peravoor (Kannur): After an LKG student at Santhinikethan English School fell from the school bus to his death, the license of the driver has been suspended.
Considering the severe lapses in safety of children travelling in the vehicle, the transport department officials have also taken steps to cancel the permit of the school bus.
Muhamamd Rafan (5) had died after he fell from the school bus and came under the wheels of the vehicle.
In connection with the incident, Iritty Joint Regional Transport Officer (RTO) Daniel Stephen suspended the driver’s license of Vijesh (39) of Vellarvally for one year.
During an investigation by Iritty motor vehicle inspector P. Rajeev, it was found that grave mistake from the driver had led to the accident. As the driver Vijesh’s explanation was unsatisfactory, the TRO decided to suspend his license.
