New Delhi: In a tragic incident, an eight-year-old student  died and 9 others were injured after commercial tempo rammed their schoolvan from behind in North Delhi’s Timarpur area on Tuesday.

The deceased boy has been identified as Vaibhav Kumar Yadav.

“Vaibhav Kumar Yadav(8), a student of Class 3, was immediately rushed to the hospital along with other children but succumbed to his injuries. Vaibhav's father Vinod Kumar Yadav is an assistant sub-inspector in Delhi police crime branch,” said the police.

The impact was so severe that both the tempo and the school van overturned. In fact, the school van turned turtle,  inuring the 10 students. The students were taken out with the help of locals and passerby on Tara Chowk, where the mishap  occured.
