Shiv Sena leader's auto runs over schoolchildren in Maharashtra's Baramati, 2 killed

Mumbai: A vehicle belonging to a Shiv Sena leader on Thursday ran over and killed two teenaged girls on the Baramati-Morgaon Road in Maharashtra's Pune district, said ANI reports. Locals allege that the auto belongs to a local Shiv Sena leader, Pappu Mane, who was allegedly indulging in rash driving. The deceased girls have been identified as Divya Dnyaneshwar Pawar (12) and Samiksha Manoj Vikar (13). "Both the girls died on the spot while the third girl sustained injuries and was rushed to a hospital", a police officer said.

"According to our investigation, there were three to four people inside the auto when the accident took place, but Mane was not inside the SUV".

After the incident, agitated villagers set the vehicle on fire. The news channel also said that while it was unclear whether Mane was driving the auto himself, he had fled from the spot after the accident and was now absconding.

Police have registered a case of culpable homicide not amounting to murder under section 304 and other relevant sections of Indian Penal Code. "At this point, we will not be able to reveal who among the five was driving the vehicle, as it is an ongoing probe", said Sub-Divisional Police Officer, Baramati, Bapu Bangar. He has said that he was not present in the vehicle when the accident took place. "The angry mob held rasta roko for some time but now the situation is under control", Pakhale added.
