Kolkata: Two persons, including a child, were injured when a bus knocked them down in Tollygunje area in Kolkata on Friday, the police said.

An elderly woman and a boy were crossing the road when they were knocked down by a private bus of Route no 40B at around 10 am, they said.

 

The two were taken to the nearby M R Bangur hospital while the bus was intercepted a little distance away and the driver arrested.

The mishap triggered protests by local people who blocked the busy S P Mukherjee Road-Desopran Sashmal Road near Charu Market police station for over an hour demanding immediate action to stop rash driving along the stretch.

The blockade, along one flank of the S P Mukherjee road, disrupted movement of vehicular traffic for an hour.

He later said the demands of the local people for more police posting and installation of traffic signal at the thoroughfare were being considered.
