The Mumbai-Ahmadabad Express highway that connects Mumbai to Ahmedabad has now turned into a nightmare highway for travellers following a steep rise in the increasing number of deaths. Going by statistics, the highway had witnessed 1,172 accidents in 2016, in which 309 people lost their lives and 812 suffered serious injuries. This figure tops the list as compared to other important highways connecting Mumbai to Goa and Pune, Thane to Nashik and Pune to Kolhapur. .

In yet another tragic incident, on Thursday morning Waliv Police arrested a bus driver for allegedly dashing into a Bolero car, where two people died on the spot with the third person severely injured who is undergoing treatment at a nearby hospital.

As per the statement given by locals to the authorities, on Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway at around 4.45 am, a Bolero car bearing number MH 84 AJ 6052, was waiting near Naigaon Maljipada near the S P Dhaba. A bus coming from behind lost control and dashed the Bolero killing two people on the spot and injuring the third person. “As per the locals statement, we have arrested the bus driver and have sent the bus for a technical check to ascertain whether the bus brakes failed or not. Two people who were killed in the accident have been identified as Manoj Kumar Jarijan (35) and Mohammad Mustafa Shaikh (40). Their bodies have been sent for an autopsy,” said a police officer attached to Waliv police station.

“Third person identified as Ram Pal (32) suffered severe injuries and is receiving treatment at a hospital. We have arrested the bus driver under relevant sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and he has been produced before court for further procedure. The Bus was bearing GJ (Gujarat code) thus we are trying to reach its owner for further investigation, “ said Suresh Cillavar, Investigating Officer.
