29/08/2019 at 12:17 PM

Bhubaneswar: In what can be termed as outcome of reckless driving, five schoolchildren were injured, three of them critically as a school auto-rickshaw turned turtle in the capital city this morning.

According to reports, the auto-rickshaw, carrying students of the Swami Vivekananda Siksha Kendra, was on its way to the school at around 10 am when the driver lost control over it. As the three-wheeler turned over the road, five students were injured.

The injured students were rushed to a nearby hospital. But three of them were shifted to the Capital Hospital in view of their critical condition.

Parents have expressed strong resentment over the reckless driving of the driver. While auto-rickshaws have been banned to carry school students, the incident happened this morning clearly indicates that private schools are flouting Government orders to their owners’ benefit.
